Img We think traditions are better than presents and we’re entering the “family customs” peak season. Making and icing cookies is an annual event at our house that started 40 years ago. Pictured above is last year's batch. Prizes are awarded for the most creative, the ugliest, and the funniest. We treasure the memories – icing fights, salt instead of sugar…..

Wishing you a Happy Holiday filled with warm traditions, health and happiness!

Christmas Morning Donut Tradition

My grandmother made the real thing, my mother took a short cut ...and so do I.

All you need is a can of Betty Crocker Original Biscuits, oil, powdered and granulated sugar, plus a mix of cinnamon and sugar (my favorite). Let the kids punch a whole in the center of each biscuit. Add about 1 ¾ inches of oil to a frying pan. Heat oil and cook biscuits until golden. Roll in the sugars. Must be eaten while they are hot!
