|When the weather outside is frightful, grab the kids and have fun while you whip up a batch of these sweet snowflake doughnuts. They make the perfect snow day treat.|
Sugar Sweet Snowflake Doughnuts (serves 4-6)
oil for frying
**You can purchase mini cutters at craft stores in the clay isle or on Amazon.com (here – Mini Metal Cutters.) If you don’t have these cutters, you can hand-cut your snowflakes using a knife. There is also one set of snowflake cutters that I found on Amazon that includes two mini cutters and three snowflake cutters. If I didn’t already own a set of snowflakes and a set of mini cutters, I might just have to purchase these.
Preheat oil in fryer or in a pot on the stove top to 350 degrees.
Unroll Pillsbury Recipe Creations Seamless Dough Sheet onto a cutting board. Cut out as many different snowflake shapes as you can. This dough doesn’t re-roll well, so just plan to just fry up the scraps and enjoy. Use the mini cutters or a knife to create unique designs in each snowflake.
Gently place a few snowflakes into the hot oil in your fryer or pot. Fry, turning over one, until both sides of the doughnut are golden brown.
Serve immediately or within an hour for the best flavor.
This is a great project to do with the kids and would be something to entertain them when they are home from school on a snow day.
