The local kosher DD is now stocking their imitation of the famous cronut. According to the teudah on the wall, pas Yisrael isn't an issue with donuts since they are fried, croissants require washing since they are bread, but it didn't address cronuts, which are midway between these two items.
How does one halachically classify the cronut for purposes of bracha rishonah, pas Yisrael, etc.?
(Note: I am not precisely sure how the cronut is made, since the creator has been rather secretive with the recipe. Clarification on this matter might resolve the whole issue. Or it might complicate things.)
