I am giving a rating of only three stars because the directions are incomplete. I am an experienced cook so I was able to modify it to come out tasting good. However a novice cook would have trouble with it. I suggest that when you come to the direction to add "the rest of the flour add only enough to make a very soft dough. Turn out on to the counter and knead in enough additional flour to make a soft but not sticky dough. Keep flouring the counter to keep the cut out doughnuts from sticking to the counter top. Hope this helps Cheers.
