The Pioneer Woman's Homemade Doughnut Recipe

How to Make Homemade Glazed Doughnuts, According to Ree Drummond

Food Network recently shared a picture of Ree Drummond's glazed doughnuts and doughnut holes on Instagram, and the recipe for the homemade doughnuts, although elaborate, will inspire you to set aside your weekend for this project. The dough itself is yeasted, meaning it's a several-day process, so the wait times may be the most difficult part. You'll make the dough one day and let it rise for several hours in multiple increments. Ree swears by frying the doughnuts and doughnut holes in vegetable shortening. She says it helps crisp up the exterior without soaking too much into the dough. Once the doughnuts are fried, Ree coats them in a homemade glaze, made from powdered sugar, salt, vanilla extract, and water.

Though The Pioneer Woman only shows how to make glazed doughnuts, if you want, you can dip them in a chocolate glaze, coat the doughnuts in toasted coconut flakes, or top them with traditional frosting and rainbow sprinkles. Anything goes!
