Doughnuts are definitely in the sweet treats hall of fame. With their signature circular shape, this dessert staple is hard to resist. One of my personal favorites is the french cruller. Different from many of the other kinds of doughnuts, the french cruller has light and airy inside its harder shell that's usually covered in a sweet glaze. It's simply delicious! (And especially with my mini crullers, they are not as heavy as regular cake or yeast doughnuts).
The good news is that they are also pretty simple to make (and a lot of fun to as well). Essentially, a french cruller is fried pate a choux dough, which is the same kind of dough used to make eclairs (such as my Pumpkin Pie Eclairs
) and cream puffs.
Mini French Crullers are simple, cute, and deliciously light and airy. In other words, there is no excuse to not have these cooking up in your kitchen. And when you do, leave a comment and let me know how it turns out!
So, let's get crulling! :)
