From Theresa Erickson:
Aunt Ruthie told me that she copied this from Maude's (Great, to me) own handwritten recipe. We couldn't wait to get our hands on these as kids. They were like pieces of heaven. I haven't had yeast donuts as good since, not even Krispy Kremes. Thank you Great, for leaving us all such a tasty treat and Thank You Aunt Ruthie, for getting it into this cookbook.
