Now is the time to put together both mixtures. For this, it is recommended that you use your hands. If you have electric rods you can use them but, as soon as possible, knead manually. Gradually pour the liquid mixture to flour, sugar and butter and knead until a consistent dough is obtained. If you knead on the table remember to sprinkle some flour so that it does not stick. The dough will be ready when it stops sticking in your hands.

When you have the dough ready, make a ball, put it in the bowl you used before, cover it with a clean cloth and leave it stand for 2 hours. After the time, knead it again, make a ball and make a cross cut over it. Now, with a roller, stretch the dough following the cross. We do this because we have to fold the dough several times, as we do with the puff pastry.

So, when you have the dough stretched in the form of a cross, bend the ends and stretch again by moving the roller in the same direction so that it is elongated. Now, take one end and take it up to a little more than half to return to fold the dough, take the other end and pass it over the first. Thus we fold the dough into two parts. Folded, wrap it with plastic wrap and leave it stand 2 more hours.

After time, remove the transparent paper and stretch the dough again. Now you can take a round mold and cut the cronuts. Remember that you must give it a donut shape, with a hole in the middle, so that they are authentic. When you have them all cut, place them on a tray, cover them with a clean cloth and let them stand for 1 hour to increase their volume.
