FINALLY: Make Your Own Cronuts — The Best DIY Ever

It was only a matter of time before the cronut crazies cracked the code. We're sure there are late-night, back-alley experiments happening all over the globe, as kitchen scientists seek to perfect the deep-fried secrets locked in Dominique Ansel's brain. Apparently, the secret to a perfect cronut recipe hack is as easier than you think. Read on, cro-nutbags.
Pillsbury crescent rolls popped up as a candidate for cronutification just days after the crusty treat debuted. Then the company itself got in on the action with this suspiciously familiar crescent donut recipe. With just a few simple groceries and a little confidence (and a lot of oil), you too can enjoy the latest dessert-breakfast craze, without having to get in line before dawn. True, it's not the original cronut, but we're just not ready to brave the madness over at Ansel's Soho bakery. Check out this GIF guide to the cronut DIY, and get cooking STAT. Ed note: We will not be mad if you send us one 50.
