OLD FASHIONED GLAZED DOUGHNUTS


Old Fashioned Glazed Doughnuts


1 cup scalded milk
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs plus 1 egg yolk, beaten
2 envelopes active dry yeast
4 cups sifted flour
Cooking Oil

In a large mixing bowl, pour scalded milk over the butter, sugar and
salt. Cool slightly. Add the eggs. When the temperature reaches
between 105 to 115 degrees, add the yeast. Let mixture stand for 5
minutes.

Blen in flour a little at a time. Mix into a soft dough. When
smooth, turn the dough out onto a well-floured board. Knead gently
for about 2 minutes. Place the dough in a greased bowl, turning to
coat all sides. Let rise for 1 hour.

Punch the dough down and divide in half. On a lightly floured board
roll each section to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with a floured doughnut
cutter. Place on waxed paper. Set in a warm place. Let rise for 30
minutes.

In a deep skillet heat cooking oil to 375 degrees. Using a slotted
spoon gently slip each doughnut into the oil. Fry for 2 minutes or
until golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels.

In another mixing bowl, blend 1 cup confectioners' sugar, 3
tablespoons water and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. Drizzle over warm
doughnuts.
