Croissants + Donuts = Cronuts

Every morning without fail I tune in to the only classy, fab and fun show I’ve listened and will listen, Wake Up with Taylor on Cosmo Radio. I know what you might be thinking Cosmo radio?! They only reason I listen to the show is because of Taylor, she is hilarious and a down to earth kinda girl. 🙂

On the show they have a segment called Fat Kid Friday in which they get to indulge in delicious and sometimes “fatty” food, let just say the kinda food you can only have once a week or maybe once a month. On one of those Fridays where they were talking on what they will be eating they mentioned a novelty pastry called cronuts. This are designed in a bakery in New York, and apparently, is the newest pastry you get in line for and wait for hours.

But what is a Cronut? Well basically, is a fried croissant, donut-style, with a glaze and optional padding.  In other words it’s a hybrid of a croissant and a donut.

If you feel adventurous and want to try to make this new trendy and fab pastry then check this awesome recipe tutorial from Food 52. GOOD LUCK! might be interested to know that you can make them at home .
