Amaya was eating thumbprint cookies last night. I saw her enjoyment and new we needed to turn them into a doughnut. Today we took our New Fashioned dough and rolled it out. We cut it using our doughnut cutter. Except we didn't remove the hole. We cut it and pressed into the hole to form a permanent indentation during frying. After frying the doughnuts we rolled them in brown butter sugar. We blended 80 grams of pressure toasted milk solids with 2000 grams of sugar. After rolling the doughnuts in the aromatic sugar we pressed the indentation down a bit more to make a nice hollow to put preserves. I tapped our friends at Eat This in the Stockton Market. We used raspberry preserves and blood orange marmalade. Both versions were delicious. My bitter side preferred the marmalade. The thumbprints were born and have made the menu. Next weekend we will be making the blood orange marmalade version for sure and another inspired by a late in the day tasting of the other amazing creations from Eat This.
