On my one failed attempt to buy a cronut, I arrived at the bakery at 9 a.m. on a Memorial Day, only to find a "sorry, we're sold out of cronuts" sign on the front door of the shop. I had an egg sandwich instead, and I vowed to return.
However, in the last two weeks cronut fever has only gotten worse, with people lining up at 6 a.m. -- a whopping three hours before the bakery opens. So, when Jezebel posted a cronut recipe, I decided to give it a try. It had to be less painful than waiting on line for three hours for fried dough.
