The donut—everyone’s favorite guilty pleasure! Cake, yeast, puff pastry, glazed, ganached or even sprinkled, we can’t seem to get enough of this confection. Cake and yeast donuts can be complicated and messy to create at home, but two sheets of puff pastry are the solution to this conundrum. Puff pastry is simple to use, easy and accessible to just about every home cook. Simply place your package of pastry into the fridge overnight to thaw. Once thawed, remove from the fridge and cut into your favorite donut shape. I chose a rectangular cutter, but your shape is only limited by your imagination.
Doughnuts! Who doesn't like a hot fresh doughnut fresh from the oil and still warm to the touch? It makes my mouth salivate just thinking about it! Many of us simply drive up to our local donut shop and choose a favorite glaze and dip, but have you ever tried making a homemade vanilla donut at home? Well, now is the time to learn how to make a donut! In this recipe we’ll be creating a puff pastry donut coated with vanilla bean sugar.
