Stop! Don’t even call me names for posting about donuts, like it’s a dirty word or something! Cause I’m guessing that 96% of our population loves donuts. I can tell you for most of my life I have ridden the 4% fence. That is until the day I learned about puff pastry donuts. The best puff pastry glazed donuts!
This post goes out to my friend – Rosemary, back in Texas. She loves donuts more than anyone I know. And I know she is anxiously awaiting this recipe. She will open this blog post and immediately start salivating and drooling into her morning coffee! Mark my words!
Her comment on my instagram post the other morning, and I quote:
“Those donuts you posted look like Heaven. Is it homemade dough? If it’s an easy recipe I would like to make them and eat them til I’m sick.” 😂 (I love her!) “They look amazing. You should make them every morning!”
Honest my friend—-they are like heaven! Also, super easy (just like I like things) and so good! Everyone will seriously think you spent hours making ’em.
Now why does Belle not like donuts? (I know you’re still stuck on the 4% thingy!) Well… I’m not big on sweets, donuts are fried (I don’t do much fried), and they’re usually too sweet and heavy (too filling)!
But these… well you’ll just have to give them a try. Please.
Best Puff Pastry Glazed Donuts
Next time you run to the grocery store, pick you up a package of puff pastry. Aside from that you should have everything else on hand!
- Oil for frying (vegetable)
- Powdered sugar
- Flour (for rolling dough out)
I’m gonna warn you now! Unless you’re like Rosemary—I recommend using only 1, (one), (uno), sheet of puff pastry for your 1st time around. You will get about 7-8 donuts from one sheet. I don’t want you eating all of ’em and then blaming me for your aching tum! There… proceed.
Best Puff Pastry Glazed Donuts
- 2 sheets puff pastry thawed
- Vegetable oil for frying
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 4 Tablespoons milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- On a lightly floured surface, roll out puff pastry.
- Cut circles out of puff pastry using two different sized circle cookie cutters, a larger circle for the outside and a smaller circle for the center.
- Fill a large pot with an inch of vegetable oil and heat over medium-high heat.
- Cook donuts in hot vegetable oil, flipping when one side is golden.
- In small mixing bowl, whisk together sugar, milk and vanilla for glaze.
- While donuts are still hot, dip them in the glaze.
These are fun for kids to help with and even more when you get to eat ’em all up! Try them and leave me some feedback. I love comments!

Ok, really? You mean I don’t have to get up at 4 am to start prepping donut dough? Like I CAN be a great Granna Skippy by making fresh donuts AND not have to have a nap by 10 am? I cannot believe I have puff pastry in the freezer. I will be making these today. I’ve been trying to find a shortcut to fresh donuts that didn’t require poppin’ fresh biscuits and here they are! Will keep you posted once the sugar high has passed. Lol.
No more getting up in the wee hours for a whole lot of unappreciated work. Let me know how they score with everyone! I believe the kids will love their Granna Skippy even more. Plus you’ll have time for a longer nap!!! ❤️
