Directions

Print
  1. Put 4 tablespoons sugar, salt, shortening and orange rind in saucepan with 1 cup hot water. Bring to a boil. Mix in 1 cup of flour. Cook until thick, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and cool slightly. Beat in one egg at a time, beating each one in thoroughly before adding another.
  2. Using a rose tip, press dough through pastry bag, in desired shape, onto a well-greased square of heavy paper. Turn paper upside down and let crullers drop into deep, hot fat (375 degrees F - 190 degrees C). Fry until well puffed up and golden brown in color, about 6 to 7 minutes. Drain on unglazed paper. Ice with confectioners' frosting.
  3. To Make Frosting: Cream 1 1/2 tablespoons shortening and continue creaming while slowly adding sugar. Add cream, salt, and vanilla and mix smooth.

Tried making these last night. The texture and flavor were superb and turned out to be a big hit at home. Although, I would recommend squeezing out thicker crullers for frying for what I think...

My husband and I loved these! I took off one star because I thought the directions could use some more detail. When piping, twist the bag and move very slowly to get a slightly thicker donut. I...
