Oh, we had those too! My kids have never had them...I should totally make them since they would be safe for the little one...

"we scored a mini donut maker in the yankee swap this Christmas-- and I have to say they're kinda tasty!" Dd9 has one that we'e used a few times, but the donuts always taste like waffles. :/

So, the kiddos had donuts this morning for brekkie. Not worth the calories to me, although I did have a mini cupcake this afternoon. I only made six dozen cupcakes...

I saw that and thought, who would make a donut out of pizza dough?

We make cinnamon rolls for Christmas morning breakfast.  The last few years, even the smell of those hasn't been enough to get the kids out of bed for Christmas.  Hard to believe.  This last year we had to kick them out of bed so we could get the presents opened before their cousins showed up for the extended family gift exchange.

My Mom used to make donuts for Christmas breakfast.  Which officially makes her superior to ex's Mom who used to make a runny, nauseating oyster "stew" for Christmas breakfast.  Anyway, I grew up to having a good appreciation for a well made donut.

The Food Network is currently under their latest season of "Next Food Network star" and being a slave to any cooking reality TV competition, I've been watching.  Last episode, one of the contestants made, allegedly, a donut for her dessert.  She claims she was going for a beignet kind of thing.  And for reasons known only to herself, she decided to use a pizza dough as the base, instead of just making her own.  Apparently, she was unaware that donuts come from BATTER not DOUGH.

Shockingly (only to her) the donuts ended up impossibly dense and hard (since she then deep-fried them, so, duh) and virtually inedible.  And she got eliminated. 

And that's what happens when you defile the name donut with pizza dough (which is yummy but which has no business trying to be a donut.)
