A Donut for You, A Donut for Me

One of my favorite childhood memories was making "homemade" donuts. We made the biscuit dough variety, dropping them in oil and frying them in a skillet. Super healthy, right? Of course not! They sure were yummy though! When we were finished cooking the donuts, we'd roll them in cinnamon and sugar and powdered sugar.

I've been wanting to try this with the girls and since the weather (Hello, July? Why are you so cool this year?) this past week was crummy, I decided it was as good a time as any. I wasn't sure exactly how we made these, since my forty year old memory fails me so often lately, so I did a little searching and found a recipe at Makes and Takes.

I surprised the girls one morning last week and let me just say they were a big hit. Kiki said they tasted almost like the funnel cakes she had at Holiday World. And since we don't have any donut bakeries close by (what happened to those places anyway?), this might just be a regular treat. Now if only I could figure out how to take the calories out. . .

What a fun thing to do on a day when the sun doesn't cooperate. The girls look like they enjoyed their homemade treats. :-)
