Mmmm, I Shall Eat 22345 of These Tonight

I was preparing our FHE for tonight and I came across this awesome recipe for Hannukah Doughnut Balls that I'm going to make for our refreshment after the lesson. They look like Aebleskivers, but they're more doughy, less pancakey:

Hanukkah Doughnut Balls

2 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
1 ½ cups sour cream
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
¼ teaspoon salt
1 ¼ cups vegetable oil for deep frying
1 cup powdered sugar

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, eggs, sour cream, sugar, vanilla and salt until well blended. (The batter will be soft.) Heat oil in deep skillet until it is hot enough to fry a 1-inch cube of bread in 1 minute. Carefully place dough by tablespoons into the oil. Fry doughnuts, a few at a time, for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden brown on all sides. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. When all doughnuts are cooked, pour powdered sugar into a plastic or paper bag. Add a few doughnuts at a time, close bag and shake gently until well coated. Serve warm. Makes 25.

from the Lion House recipes

I think I may roll some in cinnamon sugar, and drizzle a couple with chocolate, oh and when they're hot, I could put some of my strawberry freezer jam on them with butter!!! Holy. I can hardly wait.

By the way, have you all visited the Deseret Book site's FHE lesson page? Um hello, it makes FHE nearly effortless. When it is the kids turn to do lessons, I print one of these out and they study it and add their own words to it, but either way, it's awesome. Also, go here to find the new site for these same lessons! So fun!
