“There she goes again…..making those donuts!” That’s probably what you’re saying when you see this post and what you’ll say when you see all the others I have for you this year. I love making donuts. It’s so easy to make your own! As a matter of fact, I often find myself wondering why I bought them in the past when I can make whatever I want so quickly here at home. This time I bring you my own creation that took me all of five minutes to make! These are my Almond Cherry Donuts and they are melt-in-your-mouth delicious!
Almond Cherry Donuts
2 sheets puff pastry, thawed
Vegetable oil, for frying
2 cups powdered sugar
4 tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 package sliced almonds
½ cup cherry jam or pie filling
On a lightly floured surface, roll out puff pastry. Using two round cookie cutters, cut a larger circle for the outside and a smaller circle for the center.
Fill a large pot with at least an inch of vegetable oil and heat over medium-high heat. Carefully drop donuts into the hot oil and cook until golden on each side.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla to make glaze. While the donuts are still hot, dip them in the glaze.
Sprinkle tops of donuts with almonds and slightly press down to get them to adhere. You can drizzle more glaze if needed. Add a tablespoon of jam or pie filling in the center of each donut. Enjoy!
