    One word: YUMMY!!!
  • Matt Kruse
    I've only had a chance to try the old-fashioned sour cream doughnuts with their Simplest Vanilla Glaze, and am giving it four stars based on that alone. If the other recipes work out as well, I'll be updating to five stars.

    Disliked the formatting in the e-book version because of the cramped layout. Whoever formatted it apparently has never heard of page breaks.Really hated the constant (CONSTANT!) braggadocio about their association with That Chain combined with the self-congratulatory tone of "we're all that and more."

    I got this cookbook for my birthday and it has been so fun to go through. Not only are their recipes nearly flawless (I've failed many an Internet doughnut recipe), but they have great information about the different ingredients and tools, giving you an honest idea of what you really need to make these doughnuts. I highly recommend if you want to make your own doughnuts!

  • Marlee
    Nothing incredible wow when it comes to doughnuts but it does give you many ideas to create your own versions. Basic recipes with techniques which I was looking for with and awesome idea for maple and bacon flavor.
