1
cup powdered sugar
1/2
teaspoon vanilla
2
tablespoons milk

Steps

  • 1 In deep fryer or 2-quart heavy saucepan, heat oil over medium heat to 350°F. Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Using small round cookie cutter, cut hole in center of each biscuit.

Tint second bowl of glaze to desired shade with yellow food color.

Expert Tips

Flavor the pink glaze with raspberry extract and the yellow glaze with lemon extract, if desired.

Doughnuts can also be coated with cinnamon-sugar instead of glazed. Just give them a shake in a paper bag filled with a mixture of granulated sugar and ground cinnamon.
