The first evening that we made the homemade kettle chips (HKC) Zo~~my beautiful little niece!! Here she is~~~
Just had to have here it is~~ HOMEMADE DONUTS!!! She is assisting her mom in making them here in this pic~~~can ya believe it!!!??? Teens can do this~~they have the metabolism to support such frying!!! Now you may be asking yourself?? What in this world is she opening?? SSSHHHHHH~~~this is top secret here people—canned biscuits!!! Yep—that’s the ticket!!! You will never want another Krispy Cream Donut again in your life after you take one bite of these golden rings of love!!! More like a golden ring of love around my waist!!!
Here they are—now Zo put down a little flour to help with the sticky-ness of the donut!! This is totally optional her folks!! You could use wax paper or a pie dough mat!!?? She used an old pill bottle that we have had since 1970—not kidding here~~to make the perfect little donut holes!!! We keep this little pill bottle under lock and key—not our money or weapons(oops did I just say that) but we sure do this little cooking tool. I would show you a picture of these little baby donuts but—just like the HKC~~we were eating them as fast as they came out of the deep fryer!!! I think that must be a rule in our house!!! Eat as your working~~nothin’ wrong with that—I am just sayin"’!!!
Here is a pic of the icing~~I will warn ya before you judge me!!! The key to the donuts is the icing. It has to be just right—not tooooo thick and not toooo runny!!! The recipe is easy---just water and powdered sugar!!! It’s just the consistency has to be right or the donut will just not be the same!! This is another department area for Mama Maggie to help.
We use the tongs for easy dipping but you could use a big slotted spoon or even a fork would do!!! These are not hard to make—icing is the key!!! Did I already tell ya that little tid-bit of info.???
