Donut Party ~ Sam's Sweet Art

      Wanna know how to make these yummy donuts?  Here ya go...
Donut Recipe
3 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. real vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup milk plus 1 tbsp. milk
1/2 cup melted butter


Glaze: 
1/3 cup butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. pure vanilla
4 tbsp. cold water as needed
~heat butter in sauce pan, add sugar and vanilla.  Stir until smooth, then as needed, add cold water until pourable.  Glaze your donuts on a drip rack.  Glaze should harden and crack when you take a bite! :)  ~Your welcome!


Mix dry ingredients, add in wet ingredients.  
Mix to form a ball of dough.  Use additional flour if too sticky.  Cover and rest dough for 20 minutes at room temp. 
Roll on floured surface.  This dough is very nice if mixed correctly.  You can even just use your hands to push it instead of rolling, (like my daughter does.)
Rolling out the dough thicker than this photo will make size nice donuts.  Using a donut cutter works well too.



Fry em' up in oil about an inch deep at medium heat.  Be sure to test one first.  Flip each doughnut when golden brown.
Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
