DIRECTIONS

  • Heat water to 100-110°F, and dissolve the yeast and sugar. Let mix sit for about 5 minutes, or until the solution forms a foamy layer on the top.
  • Mix flour and salt in a large bowl using an electric mixer, add yeast mixture, milk, egg yolk and vanilla extract.
  • Mix well for 30 seconds or until ingredients are just combined.
  • Carefully roll the dough out to a 1/2-inch thickness on lightly floured surface. Use a 3-inch, well floured biscuit cutter and cut circles from the dough.
  • Use a well-floured lid from a plastic soda bottle to remove the insides.
  • Place the donuts on lightly floured cookie sheets, cover with wrap, and let them rest in a warm spot for about an hour or until they have doubled in size.
  • While donuts are rising, heat vegetable shortening in a fyer to 375°F.
  • After donuts have risen, carefully place 2 or 3 at a time to the heated shortening.
  • Fry for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes per side, and transfer them to a cooling rack.
  • Let cool for a minute or two, glaze and enjoy!
  • To make the glaze: Combine powdered sugar and boiling water, whisk until dissolved and smooth, add a pinch of salt to taste.
