Last night, for no reason besides we wanted to, a friend and I made doughnuts. Sadly, I didn’t any doughnut cutters, so I used a star shaped Christmas cookie cutter instead. They turned out great!

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts
2 cups scalded 
1/2 cup
2/3 cup
sugar, divided
1 teaspoon
2 tablespoons yeast
eggs (beaten)
1/4 teaspoon
7 cups sifted 
3 cups
powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon
1/2 teaspoon
1/2 cup
cold water

1.        Mix together ingredients for glaze.

2.        Melt butter in hot milk, add 1 tsp sugar and salt. Allow to cool.

3.        Beat in yeast, nutmeg, eggs, remaining sugar, and 3 cups flour.

4.        Add rest of flour (dough will be sticky).

5.        Knead for 5 minutes then allow to rise for 1-1 1/2 hours.

6.        Roll out dough, cut into shapes.

7.        Do not re-roll dough, then allow to rise for 30-45 minutes.

8.        Heat oil to 365° and fry 1 – 2 minutes on each side or until brown. Toss in the doughnut holes first, let those cook, and then proceed to cooking the donuts.

9.        Let them cool on a paper towel – helps get the glaze to stick. Dip in warm glaze.
