Who doesn’t love Mardi Gras? Well. It’s over, for this year anyway…but I found a new treat. It mimics the jam filled donuts that I loved when I could still eat wheat, eggs, cream and butter things, fried in oil. … yadda yadda.
These are better. Really. I promise. And baked, not fried… sweet dough.
I added raspberry jam to each “pocket” that I made with a dumpling folder I found at an asian market. (They also sell the dumpling folders in several sizes on Amazon.com)
I made the dough with:
- one recipe of wonder dough, and added……
- 1 T gluten free vanilla (found at Costco)
- 3 T granulated sugar
Mix dough. Pat out a golf ball sized bit of dough into a flattened circle. Set that on the dumpling folder. Spoon in a teaspoon of jam. Fold it to press the edges. You could also just do this with a fork.
Bake for 20 minutes at 400.
Roll each Jam Pocket in powdered sugar, (I use Trader Joe’s powdered sugar with tapioca starch- most other brands use corn starch) and let cool on a wire rack.
