Peanut Butter Bourbon-Filled Doughnuts

If you ask me, there's a good bit of subject matter that Dale Carnegie neglected to cover in his book "How to Win Friends & Influence People". I think a chapter on doughnuts would have been appropriate. Years ago when I worked in an office environment I would sometimes bring doughnuts to my co-workers, and those who had squabbled just one day earlier conceded to speak a few polite words over a box of glazed and jelly-filled. Segregated groups came together. White coats and secretaries stood around exchanging pleasantries "Isn't it nice out today? These are my favorite!"

Such is the magic of doughnuts. Believe it!

I've had the idea for these doughnuts ever since my visit to New York last year. My agent Lindsay took me to The Breslin for breakfast, and they served up a crazy good peanut butter bourbon sandwich. It looked a little like a doughnut to me, and it tasted even better than it looked! I made a mental note - try this at home.

My pastry is definitely different than what I sampled at the Breslin, but it has the flavor I wanted to capture with a peanut butter-bourbon filling.

Spiked S'mores Pie

Fall is in full swing here, complete with the yearly sniffles I get when the weather changes. It's a mild inconvenience considering the months to come of lovely cool temperatures and glorious color.  But I still need my creature comforts. Chocolate ganache spiked with bourbon and miles of toasted marshmallow is a cure-all, I tell ya!
