Who knew there was such a thing as lemon thyme? The original recipe I found from here on Heather Cristo’s blog, but I couldn’t find any lemon balm- even at whole foods so I opted to replace it with lemon thyme- close enough right? I bought some lemon just in case I felt like I needed to up the anty of the lemon flavor…thats what I was after, after all. Once I started cutting the thyme it was definitely lemon fragrant, so I didn’t feel like I needed to put anymore in. I basically otherwise followed the recipe, instead baking at 350 for 15 min as my oven needed that extra heat and time. I also didn’t have any cream, so I used a little half and half in the glaze instead- it was fine.
I was excited to use my new donut pan that I bought at Crate and Barrel yesterday and having these pinned for forever, I knew they would be the first thing I made. I am eagerly waiting JPS’ return to see if he likes them as well! They seem to be a hit on instagram so far!
