Happy Valentine's Day! I hope everyone is looking forward to a fun day of celebrating with family and friends.
If you are looking for a last-minute treat for Valentine's Day you might want to try these heart-shaped doughnuts. We had leftover dough from making beignets for Mardi Gras, so I decided to cut some of the dough into heart shapes to make a Valentine treat for breakfast today.
To make these heart-shaped treats, use the recipe for beignets found here, but instead of cutting your dough into squares, use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut the dough into heart shapes. Then fry just the same way you would fry regular doughnuts. Serve with powdered sugar on top and enjoy!
Hint: Doughnuts are always best served fresh, so if you aren't going to eat them all in one day, save some of the dough to fry another day. And if you know you are going to be frying up doughnuts for a few days in a row as we did, be sure to save your oil to re-use it.
