What is a Cruffin?

What’s a cruffin? A cruffin is a cross between a croissant and a muffin. Not to be mistaken for a puffin (a puff pastry muffin combo) or a biffin (a muffin made with biscuit dough). Though, both of those sound delicious! A cruffin takes crescent roll dough and bakes it up in a muffin pan.

What’s the difference between crescent roll and puff pastry?  They’re both laminated doughs, but croissant dough contains yeast that makes them bake up puffy and light. Which is the texture we’re going for!
