doughnuts for dessert

A couple days ago, I tried making these oatmeal cookie pie things. The cookie part of them turned out pretty awesome despite the weird ingredients, but I could not make the filling part work. I tried twice and used up all the milk. My guess is I didn’t beat the butter and sugar enough, but I whipped it up for like 10 minutes. I am still kinda bitter about it, but whatever.

But the universe made it up to me yesterday and gave me these doughnuts.┬áMy guy has been working awfully late this week, and I knew he would enjoy a baked espresso glazed doughnut. I switched it up a little bit, and made baked doughnut “holes” (aka I used a whoopie pie pan to make baby doughnuts). I also used gold sprinkles on top since I didn’t have any chocolate ones. The guy loved them, as did all the coworkers who enjoyed them this morning.

peanut butter likes honey

I don’t eat a lot of honey. Not that I don’t like it, but it is just very sticky.

I know about the peanut butter and honey combo, but it has never popped into my head to make peanut butter and honey cookies. It is a true revelation. I just replaced half the butter and sugar in the recipe with some honey, and it adds a little something magical. The dough did get progressively slimy, and the cookies got flatter and flatter as I made more batches, but look at those nooks and crannies. Try them!
