I made this dozens of times. Children helped, and now grandchildren help make this. Over 30 years ago, my brother's soon-to-be wife, who was in college majoring in home economics, made me a version of Goof Balls. Children have fun helping with this, too.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These were sweet, fluffy, flaky and oh so good. They smelled like donuts while cooking! Everyone kept asking "what are you cooking?" We tried baking these too, but preferred them fried (fried always wins!). They would be great for a bake sale, after-school snack and would look pretty on a holiday dessert table. If you want to try baking, I baked them at 350 for 20 minutes on a parchment-lined cookie sheet, middle rack of the oven.
