Making Donuts

It seems like if I ask the kids if they want to make a treat on a Sunday afternoon, it always ends up being donuts - we probably make them once every few months. Yesterday we tried a new recipe and they turned out great - I thought I would share it, since donuts might have more universal appeal than Nut Burgers.
These are a few that I made with a donut cutter that I inherited from my grandmother.

Yes, you can find nirvana by eating these donuts.

Those look fantastic! Is there a big learning curve for making good donuts? The pictures almost make me want to abandon my no-deep-frying at home rule.

You continue to make me feel inspired and intimidated with your cooking. These look delicious, and since I know your cooking, I can safely say that they are delicious. Maybe I'll try them. ("I think I can, I think I can...")

PS GREAT talking to you last week. Miss you!!

You'll have to make these for me when I make my way up to your neck of the woods. You know Doug and his no deep frying rule!

Is it possible to make them and skip the deep-frying, lol?

Tell Jason he better watch his girlish figure. Too many donuts might go straight to his hips!
