My Mom was the best baker I have ever known, along with Great Aunt Jane. Whether it was pies, breads, cakes, or.....yes, doughnuts. Even though they are fried, I classify that as a baking product because of the dough you use.

I stated somewhere before on here that my Mom never owned a cookbook. I lied! Well, actually, I forgot about this one. This recipe comes from a 1957 ROBIN HOOD COOKBOOK that was my Mom's. I still have it to this day & is the one I treasure the most. The rolls & loaves of bread & OH....the doughnuts she made from that cookbook! These simply melt in your mouth. It is ha

Rhonda, good luck!
Marilyn, Crisco, in the can, in the baking isle. Doesn't have to be butter flavor if they don't have it.

What kind of shortening? The Cisco you find in the baking isle or butter?

Wow Peggi, I remember my mom having a Robin Hood cookbook when I was young too! I had forgotten all about that. Thank you for the blast from my past, and I'm definitely going to make these. I just bought a new donut/biscuit cutter and this is perfect to break it in. Thanks for posting!

Don't know Grace, never did it. I would imagine you could though, at 325 degrees, since it is a bread dough.
