Happy Donut Day!

This is absolutely the last sugary holiday we are celebrating for a while…  I’ve crossed National Applesauce Cake Day off the list and everything.

That being said, Happy Donut Day!  National Donut Day, the first Friday of June each year (June 3rd this year), is another holiday with Great Depression origins – with Rocky Road and donuts, I’m not quite sure how the depression could have lasted as long as it did!  Thanks, Salvation Army, for honoring women volunteers and motivating Krispy Kreme, Dunkin’ Donuts, and many other companies to offer free donuts around the country for generations to come…

To make our celebration somewhat educational, we made our donuts from scratch.  Using a package of refrigerated biscuit dough, a pan of hot oil, and powdered sugar.  Which is about as much scratching as I feel like doing.  At least we get to discuss the dangers of hot oil and overexposure to sugar and other important educational stuff.

Care to join us?  We’ve got more biscuit dough in the fridge, and Esmé didn’t use up quite all the sugar, though she tried her best.
