I never thought to take pictures so I had the tops on and sealed when I did remember LOL
1 package dry yeast(1 scant tablespoon)
3 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup lukewarm water
3 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour(approximately)
1 cup lukewarm skim milk
1 large egg
pinch of salt
grated zest of one lemon
3 tablespoons reduced fat butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup cherry pie filling, jam, or whichever fruit preserve you prefer
confectioner's or granulated sugar for sprinkling
1. Dissolve the yeast and 1 tablespoon of the sugar in the water.
2. Put the flour in the bowl of a food processor equipped with a steel blade. Add the dissolved yeast, milk, egg, egg yolk, salt, lemon zest and the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar. Process until blended. Add the butter and process until the dough becomes sticky yet elastic. ( I needed to add more)
3. Remove the dough to a bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place for at least an hour. If you want to prepare the dough in advance, place it in the refrigerator overnight, then let it warm to room temperature before rolling and cutting.
4. Grease and dust flour onto 2 cookie sheets. Dust a pastry board with flour. Roll the dough out to a 1/2-inch thickness. Using the top of a glass as a cutter, Cut into a dozen 3-inch rounds. Spoon 1 teaspoon of fruit in the center of half of the rounds. Brush edges with a little water then top with remaining rounds of dough which also have been brushed with water. Press edges to seal. Place filled rounds on a floured baking sheet and repeat with remaining dough. Cover filled rounds with towel and let rise for about an hour, until doubled in bulk. Place the balls about 1 to 1 1/2-inches apart on the greased cookie sheets. Cover and let rise 30 minutes more.
5. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake the doughnuts for 10 to 15 minutes or until they're golden. Remove from the oven and let cool.
6. Brush while warm with a bit of margarine or butter and sprinkle with confectioner's or granulated sugar.
It made me 10 filled donuts which aren`t too bad tasting at all. Haven`t tried one cold yet, but their nice while warm. I think I would add a bit more sugar next time to the dough for a sweet treat. These would also (without the sugar) be a great recipe to add a meat filling, cheese and veg or pizza filling instead!
