Does one need an excuse to make donuts? I don't think so.
But if I did need an excuse, this new-to-me (thanks Keitha!) donut cutter is it.
It makes perfectly shaped donuts and donut-holes. Before this, I used two separate biscuit cutters that weren't really the right size. The donut part ended up very skinny, and the donut-hole part was huge. Now they are perfect.
The second donut-making experience went smoothly this past Saturday. My hubby and I set up the kitchen so that I can fry the donuts, and he is right next to me ready to glaze them.
We've decided to strain the used frying oil and reuse it the next time we make donuts. My husband has clearly labeled that oil so we don't confuse it with others.
He cracks me up.
