Donuts = Happiness


I had a doughnut party with some friends about a month ago. The recipe is courtesy of 101 Cookbooks. I made the dough and the above picture is after it's risen once. We used a cup to cut the holes in the dough, which my friends found strangely very entertaining.  There was much giggling and gratuitous prodding of the dough. 
I'm not sure if this is a picture of a footprint or a heart, but I guess both represent the influence friends have over the heart.  Boy, that was overly sentimental. Ellyse is cuting holes in the little suckers.

We had to let them rise again before baking them and here's what they look like after they've been popped into the oven. They looked a lot like bagels!

Until we decorated them with a chocolate glaze, a lemon glaze, a powdered sugar and milk glaze, and a sugar-cinnamon mixture.  Then they kinda looked like donuts. And then we ate them. They were perfect with coffee, tea, or milk. 

The photos were taken lovingly and whimsically by Danica.
