French Crullers Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)

My husband and I loved these! I took off one star because I thought the directions could use some more detail. When piping, twist the bag and move very slowly to get a slightly thicker donut. It also looks a little prettier. (You can do any shape you like. I made hearts for Valentine's Day last year.) Once they're on the wax paper, freeze them for about 20 minutes while you make the glaze. You will have to increase the cooking time by about one minute. As far as the glaze, I melted the butter on the stove top and subbed regular sugar for half of the confectioner's sugar. It makes the glaze taste a little more like in the donut shops and easier to drizzle onto the crullers.

Tried making these last night. The texture and flavor were superb and turned out to be a big hit at home. Although, I would recommend squeezing out thicker crullers for frying for what I think will be the real experience of every bite you take. The ones I made were a bit too thin (maybe the circumference of a quarter) lessening the punch of each bite. There's nothing to complain about this recipe. It was fantastic and you should try making them if you find these interesting. I also replaced the orange zest with cinnamon and nutmeg, just like the other review said.

These crullers tasted good but didn't have a great presentation. I had some trouble shaping them and they deflated as soon as i removed them from the oil. If i make these again I think I would just drop them by spoonfuls into the oil and see what i get.

My family loved these. I did replace the orange zest with nutmeg and cinnamon because that is what we like. Very easy took 20 minutes. Sprinkled powered sugar on top instead of icing. Very yummy!

Great flavor but greasy. After I took the crullers out of the oil, they would deflate.

These are absolutely wonderful. I will definately make them often and double the recipe. My family loved them. I did not have orange zest on hand and they were still fabulous.I will try them with the orange zest in the future.
