After searching for some inspiring sweets for Valentine's Day, I hit jack pot and got inspired to make my own heart glazed donuts from here. Not only did I make glazed, but I sprinkled some with cinnamon sugar too, oh yum! Those may be viewed on behind the scenes on my instagram.
I used a different glaze for this recipe. I have to say, the kids were excited to see these. Who would have thought to use biscuit mix to make these lovelies? Love that!
For these donuts I used Biscuit Grands Flaky Layers.
I use a heart shaped cookie cutter to cut my hearts out or any shape you wish.
When you are done cutting your hearts, fill a pot with about 3 cups of vegetable oil,
enough to cover your dough when frying.
Amount depends on the size of your pot, it should be about 3 inches deep.
Warm your oil on medium heat, set about 350 degrees.
Fry the donuts for about 1 minute or so on each side.
Remove from heat and set on paper towels to soak excess oil.
Let your donuts cool.
In the meantime, make your glaze.
1 1/4 cup Confectioners sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2-4 tsp milk
drop of red food coloring for pink coloring
Place sugar in bowl, add vanilla and milk, slowly mix until you have your desired consistency. You will want your glaze to be thick. When you have reached your thickness level, put aside a bit of the glaze in a small bowl to mix with food coloring to add pink design to the donuts.
When the donuts have cooled off, dunk your donuts halfway into the glaze mix then pull up.
Allow excess to drip off into the bowl. Put aside and continue to do the same to each one.
For your pink glaze, take a plastic zip lock bag and pour your glaze into it.
Cut a small hole on a corner forming an icing bag. This will help you add the pink icing to your donuts with ease.
Let your glaze cool and enjoy the donuts!
Happy Valentine's Day!
