So after supper I mixed up a batch of my Best Ever Crescent Roll Dough, which is a pretty close approximation to the dough for "Spudnuts." I don't know if you can find Spudnut donut shops around anymore, but they used to be a franchise all over Idaho and the Pacific Northwest---I seem to remember seeing one at Pike's Market in 2004. Anyway, the addition of mashed potatoes or potato flour to a rich sweet dough makes for some mighty fine donut dough. I wrote a blog about it last year, which you can find HERE along with a link to the recipe I used. I blogged about donuts the year before, about this same time. Why?
Because tomorrow is National Donut Day. Get out the fryer.
