Heavenly Baked Crullers with Cherry Glaze

105 mins (prep 60, cooking 45)
13 ingredients

Adapted from Marcy Goldman's A Passion For Baking, this takes the often deep-fried French Cruller doughnut and bakes it before dunking it in a beautiful pink glaze. You can substitute shortening for the butter if you wish. Using "bread" or "strong" flour is very very important here... the gluten needs to develop fully to trap the air pockets inside.
