Place wire rack on rimmed baking sheet; set aside.

Step 3

Combine sugar and cinnamon in small bowl; set aside.

Step 4

Lightly flour your work surface, and unroll one sheet of puff pastry dough.

Step 5

Brush dough with half of beaten egg, and fold puff pastry dough up into thirds

Step 6

While dough is folded in thirds, cut out 3 donuts using a 3-inch donut cutter (or 3-inch round cutter, and then use a smaller round cutter to cut out the hole).

Step 7

Repeat with other sheet of puff pastry dough.

Step 8

Place cut out cronuts and holes on prepared wire rack, and freeze for 15 minutes.

Step 9

While dough is in freezer, heat oil to 375 degrees F in large, deep saucepan over medium-high heat.

Step 10

When oil is up to temperature, fry cronuts 2 at a time until golden brown and puffed—fry 3-5 minutes on one side, flip over, and fry for another 1-2 minutes.

Step 11

Drain briefly on paper towel-lined plate, and then roll cronuts in cinnamon sugar mixture.

Step 12

Repeat with remaining dough and donut holes.
