New Sunday tradition!

I love making yummy breakfast on Sunday mornings for my family. I came across this new cinnamon doughnut hole recipe in my FoodNetwork magazine and thought it sounded daunting. BUT I made it and it was super easy and of course super yummy! This is not something you make often (calories are not so friendly) but for a special treat or Sunday breakfast it works great. And your family thinks your so talented and cool for making them...heehee!
So here it is - try it!
4 T unsalted butter
1 t vanilla extract
1/2 C flour
1/2 C instant mashed potatoes
1 1/2 C sugar
1/2 t salt
3 large eggs plus 1 egg white
2 T ground cinnamon
vegetable oil, for frying
1. combine 1/2 cup water, the butter and vanilla in a medium saucepan; bring to a simmer, stirring to melt butter. Remove from heat and stir in flour, instant potatoes, 1/2 cup sugar and salt. Return to medium heat and stir dough till its tight and doesn't stick to sides - 2 min. Transfer dough to a bowl and cool for 10 min.
2. beat dough with wooden spoon, add eggs one at a time -mixing until each egg is fully incorporated before adding next. once all eggs are added beat with spoon till glossy and smooth -1 min. Set aside for 1 hour!
3. mix remaining sugar and cinnamon in shallow dish. Place heavy bottom pot over medium heat and fill it about 1/3 of the way with the oil -340 deg. With small ice cream scoop, drop heaping teaspoons of dough into the oil (in batches). FRY - turning once, until golden brown - 6 min. Transfer doughnuts with a slotted spoon to the cinnamon-sugar mixture and roll to coat. serve warm!
