Crispy Croissant Treats

This recipe sort of reminds me of Mexican Bunuelos. I used to make Bunuelos at Christmas to give as gifts, in Christmas Tins. They're a Crisp, Deep Fried Dough, sort of like a Fried Croissant Dough and it's coated in Cinnamon and Sugar. Here's a new treat that I call Crispy Croissant Treats. You could also make these at Christmas and give them as gifts in Decorative Holiday Tins.

Now that I've made them I have a few thoughts about it. I decided to keep it on the Blog. I wasn't impressed with the look in the beginning. But, I cut the dough in half before baking them because we were having more than 8 guests for a party. I think I'll keep the dough whole the next time and just break them into pieces after they're baked. They're crispy, delicious and taste great with a cup of coffee.

For the Holidays you can make them with
Duncan Hines Confetti Cake Mix.

1/4 C Granulated Sugar
1/4 C Light Brown Sugar
1/4 C Duncan Hines Yellow Cake Mix (or Confetti Cake Mix)
1/2 C Flour
1 Canister of  8 Pillsbury Crescent Rolls (this recipe makes 8, you can cut them in half before baking or you can double the recipe if you need to make more than 8.)

1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 C Confectioner's Sugar
1 TBS Whole Milk
2 TBS of Duncan Hines Yellow Cake Mix

Transfer the Pan to a Rack to Cool completely.

Icing Directions.

Drizzle evenly over the Croissants. (after making them the first time, I would put the Icing in a Ziplock Bag, trim the corner and drizzle a nice zigzag pattern over them.
