Five stars for taste! I fried them at medium low heat, because at a higher temperature they burned on the outside and were doughy on the inside. The dough was extremely sticky and could not be removed from the wax paper I put them on to rise. I ended up having to reshape the doughnuts after peeling them off. I recommend using lots of flour! Doughnut holes were easier to make and cooked better. The doughnuts were very flat and crispy on the outside. *UPDATE* I added at least 1 cup of flour and the dough wasn't sticky! I put each donut on a separate peice of greased wax paper on a jelly roll pan and covered them loosely with greased plastic wrap. I slipped them in the fridge overnight, but they didn't rise much so I put them in a warm oven in the morning. Half were excellent, but one tray stuck to the wax paper and deflated when I peeled them off. Still, this time was much more successful! Also, for the icing add an extra cup of powdered sugar and a bit more water. It wasn't sweet enough for my family. NOTE: I omitted the water, used butter instead of shortening, and made the dough using a bread machine. Half the recipe made 10 donuts plus donut holes.
