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 were made with love with Country Crock butter

and my sister’s eggs. Yes, my sister has chickens.

She’s an outdoorsy, animal loving girl.


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.



Here’s your printable-
