Like mixing fragrances for soapy projects, I love experimenting with pairing unusual flavors in the kitchen. In particular I like introducing herbs to sweets, such as these Lemon Rosemary Doughnuts with Raspberry Glaze! The rosemary introduces a touch of earthiness, which creates a complex flavor combination. The similar effect is achieved in the Browned Butter & Basil Shortbread that I made for the holiday cookie party in 2013.
Because these donuts are baked and not fried, they are a great way to indulge without feeling guilty. The glaze is easy to make, and can be created with both fresh or frozen raspberries. Don’t you love the vibrant red color it gives the doughnuts? So pretty! I made these doughnuts for the office this week, and they went super fast!
