Welcome to The Tart Tart, my not-so-tart take on food, writing, and photography. I decided to start up this sucker after repeated nagging from Chris, my fiance, who cannot understand why the sight of a farmer’s market would send me into ecstatic convulsions (okay, total overstatement. I can be quite the histrionic at times).With that said, my interests, though chiefly in food, also span fashion, design, literature, and photography. So don’t mind the seemingly non sequitur odds and ends I toss in posts at times.

I can’t believe Christmas is creeping up on me.  I have so much to do still.  I haven’t even started my shopping yet.  I really need to get it together and get it done.  In the meantime, I will have a donut.  I made these eggnog donuts last year with cinnamon and they were so moist and full of flavor.  I just had to make them again, but with a peppermint twist. 

The ingredients are pretty basic.  The Andes Peppermint Crunch I have found at Target, Walmart, and World Market. 

And with my Babycakes donut maker machine, they bake up fast.  Just three minutes per batch.  I baked these while hosting four neighborhood kids who were baking up their own treats with my daughter and her Easybake oven.

They kids ate a few of the donuts as is.  Later on I topped the donuts with an egg nog glaze and some candy cane sprinkles.  Either way, they are delicious.  They ended up with just the right amount of peppermint flavor versus eggnog.  You have got to try adding eggnog to your baked donuts.  It really gives the donuts a richer flavor and keeps them moist on the inside.
