Recipe by Chef John
"Cronuts are the donuts that make people go nuts! They have the shape and flavor of a doughnut, yet feature the crispy, flaky texture of a buttery croissant. In Part I, I'll show you how to make the dough; in Part II, we'll fry, eat, and analyze."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

active dry yeast
warm water (105 degrees F/41 degrees C)
2 1/2 tablespoons

I cant find European-style (low-moisture) butter is there a substitute or can i just use regular butter??? please help
I whated to print your cronut, so I use your photos
This recipe was time consuming but the steps were pretty simple. I had to add more liquid after adding the flour. If I made this again, I'd only use 3 cups of flour. Otherwise, I'd follow all of the steps as stated.
How can you make this ahead of time? or can you store it in the refrigerator without it losing it's taste or texture? I want to make this, but the event it will be for is in the morning...
Is it possible to make this recipe using all-purpose gluten free flour?
The only thing different from the recipe that I did was using a regular unsalted butter. All cronuts turned out great! It took me awhile to make but it was worth it. If you don't have a circular cutter, I used a big glass and a water bottle cover. What a workaround! I will definitely save this recipe. My hubby and kids loved it!
Fun and fairly easy - what can one say of Chef John? His recipes never fail and he's a delight to watch =D
