Well hello 2018!! Where the heck have you been?! As you know, I am a celebrator of all the holidays and apparently most of that celebrating revolves around food! Shocker right? My kids love doughnuts, and I have always wanted to make those cool letter ones. Ringing in the new year seemed like the perfect time to try it out! I decided to go with a simple “recipe” to get me started.
I made my glaze fist.
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 tbsp milk
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Mix everything together and set aside.
For the doughnuts, I used refrigerated biscuit dough and oil for frying.
I found some alphabet Cookie cutters at world market. I picked up the number ones while I was at it.
I cut out the letters I needed from the biscuit dough and dropped them in the 350 degree oil. They puffed up and cooked quickly, so make sure you keep an eye on them! I placed them on a cooling rack with a paper towel to absorb any excess oil. Once cool, I dipped the top in the glaze. Once dry, I dipped it for a second time and coated with some fun sprinkles I found at Michaels. You can also find them Here
The boys were so excited and Austin said they tasted just like the donut shop! It’s a win in my book! They may not look perfect, but not bad for my first attempt! I don’t think these will make it to January 2nd!
Happy New Year friends! Here’s to a fantastic 2018!!
