I’ve spent lots of time eating creating the magnificent delicacy we call “Cronuts” over the last couple of years, and one of the best results that have come out of them (other than eating them) is the little leftover nuggets of love~  Those Cronut Holes!

I wasn’t about to let them just go to waste … OH NO!

With these pop-in-your-mouth little gems, all you’ll really need is self-control, HAHA…and I’m talking some serious self control!  At the very least have someone who loves you within arm’s reach to slap the 19th Hole right out of your hand!  😉

What you’ll need for 2 dozen Cronut Holes:    

1 container of Pillsbury Crescent Seamless Dough Sheet (you could use regular Crescent dough, but seal them up into one sheet)

1 cup of Butter (softened)

1 cup of Cinnamon/Sugar blend..to taste

Oil for frying~I used Canola!

Maple Glaze:

1/2 cup Powdered Sugar

approx. 2 tablespoons Maple Syrup

a splash of water for consistency

a 1″ round cookie cutter ..OR shot glass..lol!

Directions (just like the large Cronut):

Unroll the dough and roll it out to 9×13..use some flour if neccessary!

Butter the dough evenly with ALL of that softened Butter…

Now. fold it into thirds just like a letter…

Pop it into the fridge for at least a half hour (just so it’s cool)..then Roll, fold, …roll, fold, …roll, fold!  🙂  You can do the roll/fold all three times, or just 2..but the more you fold and roll..the more layers you’ll end up with.

Roll it just until the dough is wide enough to fold again…etc.  then cut out your holes. 

Make the Maple Glaze:

Simply combine the Powdered Sugar with the Maple Syrup…

Add a splash of water if needed to get it how you like it…

2 hours later>>>Roll it out the dough to approx 1/8 ” and cut out your 1″ Holes…

You will get about 24 Holes with a re-roll of the scraps at the end!

Into the HO (350-360 degree) Oil! 

Fry them until they’re golden and puffed~

Make sure your Oil is hot enough, if it’s not hot enough, or you’re not patient enough {eh-hem}..this will happen!

While they’re warm, dust them in the Cinnamon Sugar…

And some of that Glaze…

Maybe some more Cinnamon?…

If you haven’t eaten all of them yet, now would be a great time think about serving them to friends & family…

Yeah, that means you have to share them…

But grab a plate for you first..lol!

Admire all of those flaky, buttery layers of love,  that you worked so hard for…

Close your eyes, and taste that melt in your mouth, buttery, flaky, sticky sweet, single bite of Heaven!  ~Enjoy!
