Small Batch Cinnamon Sugar Puff Pastry Donuts

Cinnamon Sugar Puff Pastry Donuts

It was Sunday morning, the whole family was up and the coffee was brewing.  Plans for the day were being made and then my little kitchen helper decided that he wanted to make something.  Something involving cinnamon and sugar of course.  I have had this half box of puff pastry in the freezer since making hand pies a few weeks back and he has inquired about the box several times.  Maybe this was the day I could use up the remaining contents.  I started researching what I could make using the puff pastry and came across Puff Pastry Donuts from Dessert For Two blog.  (She has so many awesome recipes, check out her site when you can) So I made a few changes and Cinnamon Sugar Puff Pastry Donuts were on the Sunday morning agenda.

This couldn’t be easier and faster to make and tastes great.  Light and airy with wonderful cinnamon sugar flavor, these are the best “short cut” donuts I have made.  I decided to fry the dough, but these could easily be baked in the oven too.

Helpful Tips:

  1. Test the size donut cutter to the width of the frozen puff pastry dough.  My donut cutter was slighting larger than the dough, so once the dough was pliable, I rolled the dough out just enough (maybe an inch) to cover the gap needed.
  2. The original recipe called for leaving the dough in the refrigerator overnight to thaw, but I needed to make them that morning, so I thawed for about 30 minutes before applying the egg wash.
  3. My donut cutter only cut 2 large donuts out of one piece of puff pastry dough.  I cut 6 donut holes out of the remaining dough.  Your cutter might be able to make 3 large donuts.
