"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Cream shortening, vanilla and sugar. Beat in eggs and potatoes. Mix all dry ingredients in seperate bowl and alternate flour with milk into creamed ingredients.
Chill at least 1 hour.
Roll out dough and use a doughnut cutter to cut. Fry in hot oil (I use Crisco in a wok). Make sure oil is hot enough by testing with a doughnut hole. Oil is ready when dough is immediately covered with bubbles and pops up quickly to the top of the oil.

Personal Notes:
My mom found this recipe when I was really little in an old Betty Crocker cookbook. She used to come to our classrooms each year and make doughnuts for everyone in our class. It was a very popular event!
