No Fry Donuts

Sarah also sneaks food experiments to their church carry-ins. She over-heard three ladies who were clustered around a beautiful patter of what ‘looked’ like cream -filled donuts  trying to figure it out!

No Fry Creme Filled Donuts

Just In time for Donut Day !

1 1/2 package yeast

1/2 cup warm water

2 cup mashed potatoes

1 cup sugar – Mix the above 4 ingredients and let stand for 1 hour

Add 3/4 cup shortening

1 egg

1 cup of potato water

1 teaspoon salt

7 cups of bread flour – mix altogether well.

Let the dough rise till it doubles. Then roll it out 1/2 inch thick on a floured surface. Cut with a round cutter. Put on greased cookie sheets to rise until doubled again. Bake @ 350 degrees for 15  minutes or until nice and brown! When removed from oven spray the tops with a butter spray, or grease lightly with butter. Place on a rack to cool. When cooled cut in half and put your favorite icing  in the center. Replace top for a lid. Roll in powdered sugar right before you serve them!

This recipe is another ‘keeper’ ! I also use it for dinner rolls or cinnamon buns!
