defrost/reheating frozen doughnuts

I was given several very delicious doughnuts (crullers from Daily Provisions), so many that I had to freeze a few. I'm hoping that when defrosted that they will still have a lovely custardy interior (almost like a canele). Should I defrost in the refrigerator, and would it be harmful to reheat in an oven? There is a cinnamon sugar coating, and I wouldn't want it to melt. It would also be nice to crisp up the exterior.
Thanks for any suggestions!

For just eating the doughnuts, yes either defrost in fridge or about 10 to 15 seconds in microwave.
For crisping, this is trickier. Maybe heat a short time under a broiler in the oven, watching it all the time. Yes, the cinnamon sugar coating might melt.
