Peanut Butter Glazed Beignet

A couple of summers ago, we had our first taste of Doughnut Plant’s Peanut Butter Glazed Donut from Dean & Deluca in NYC.  Best doughnut I’ve ever had!  My daughter, who was home for a week back in February had a craving for this unforgettable doughnut.  My search for doughnut recipes eventually led me to beignet (ben-YAY), French for fritter.  They’re really easy to make and they’re lighter than doughnuts.
