Continuing down my Canadian cooking adventure is the Tim Hortons’s Honey Cruller.
- 1 cup Water
- 6 tablespoons Unsalted Butter
- 2 tablespoons Granulated Sugar
- ¼ teaspoon Salt
- 1 cup All-Purpose Flour
- 3 Eggs
- 2 Egg Whites
- 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice
- 1 ½ cups Confectioners Sugar, sifted
- 2 tablespoons Honey
- 3 tablespoons Milk
- Preheat oven to 450. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or with a silicone baking mat.
- In a saucepan stir water, butter, sugar, and salt. On a medium-high heat, bring it to a boil. Once you reach the boiling temperature, add in the flour. Continue cooking this for five minutes and keep stirring.
- Add this into your mixer, and mix for two minutes to let it cool down. One at a time add in your eggs until they are completely incorporated. Then add in two egg whites, and mix them in as well.
- Now add this to a piping bag with a ½ inch star piping tip. Pipe the donuts two inches apart onto the lined baking sheets.
- Bake them at 450 for five minutes. After that, lower the temperature to 325 and continue to cook for 15 minutes. Don’t take them out when they are done. Just turn off the oven and open the oven door to let them sit in there for another 5 minutes.
- For the honey glaze, all you need to do is combine the lemon juice, confectioners sugar, honey, and milk in a small bowl.
- Once the crullers are cooled down, dip them into the glaze. Let them rest on a wired rack for three minutes to harden.
