Raspberry Beignets

As I’m writing this post I’m reminded of the Prince song “Raspberry Beret“.

Remember that?? Oh…how I love the ’80’s.

These beignets are filled with a cream cheese/raspberry mixture, very close to a donut, and sprinkled with powdered sugar and drizzled with melted chocolate. IMGP2210
