SMS: Bee Stings

It's Sweet Melissa Sunday time! Our recipe for this week was Bee Stings which are basically a baked cream filled donut. I was completely happy with the choice and was looking forward to it. I mean, what's not to like? Pastry cream inside of a warm bread and dipped in honey. YUM YUM YUM!

Each component was tasty on their own but together they created something so delicious. They were somewhat time consuming to make with the rising and refrigeration of the dough, so plan ahead if you make these. Also, make sure you hollow out the middle better than I did. The pastry cream to dough ratio was not enough for me!



Head over to Jamie's blog Good Eats 'n Sweet Treats for the recipe and check out the SMS blogroll to see what everyone else has to say!

These look great, Cristine! What a fabulous job you did. I love the idea of bee stings. I can't wait until I get my standmixer so I can try this (I was a little too lazy to try this one by hand.). Your bee stings look so professional, and I bet they taste amazing!

Your bee stings look awesome! They really look so much better with the sliced almonds but all I had were slivered so I threw them on :) Glad you enjoyed them!

I almost wish I had made the pastry cream, just to see if I liked these better filled, instead of plain.
