Ingredients Needed For This Puff Pastry Donuts Recipe:
- Puff Pastry Sheets
- Vegetable oil
- Powdered sugar
- Vanilla extract
- All-purpose flour (for your counter)
How To Make This Puff Pastry Donuts Recipe:
To begin making these amazing donuts, lightly flour your counter with all-purpose flour (aka sprinkle flour on the counter) and then place the puff pastry sheets on top.
Roll out the pastry sheet dough, but not too thin.
Once the dough is rolled out, use two different sized round cookie cutters to create the donut shape.
You will want one large cutter to create the outside of the donut shape and then a significantly smaller circle to cut out the inside of the donut.
Cut out as many donuts that you can fit on the sheet of dough.
Then, fill a wide pot with about an inch of vegetable oil and heat it over medium-high heat.
Once the oil is hot enough, gently place the dough cut out into the hot oil.
When the dough turns golden brown flip it over to allow the other side to cook. Watch them carefully, you do not want them to overcook!
Then, for the icing, use a medium sized bowl and whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract.
Mix it all together until it is the consistency of a glaze.
When the donuts are done cooking, dip them right in the glaze while they are still hot, flipping them to make sure they are covered.
Then place them on a wire rack or wax paper too cool.
You can also eat these soon after, just make sure not to burn your mouth. 😉
