Kids love to make these. They can be creative with the filling and in cutting the 'donuts' into shapes.

Jelly Doughnuts
Bread slices, (white, honey, challah, etc)
Jam, any flavor
Cinnamon sugar
Batter
Oil for deep frying

1.Make jam sandwiches, using a good amount of jam between the slices of bread.
2.Cut crusts from bread, then cut the sandwiches into squares, or use a cookie cutter to cut sandwiches into creative shapes (kids love this part).
3.Dip sandwiches in batter. Deep fry in hot oil until golden. Roll in cinnamon sugar.

Batter:
2 c AP flour
1 ts salt
1 tb baking powder
1 tb sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 c milk

1.Mix dry ingredients together, beat eggs with milk.
2.Add wet mixture to dry mixture and mix well. Dip sandwiches in batter - do not allow to soak, and then deep fry.

I made these up when my son was about 2 yrs. old. I didn't have any money & it was 3 days till pay day & he was crying for candy. About all I had in the house to make anything close to candy was peanut butter, powdered sugar, honey, & unsweetened cocoa powder. So, this is what I came up with.

Peanut Butter Yummies

peanut butter(crunchy or creamy)
honey
powdered sugar
unsweetened cocoa powder

Mix peanut butter & enough honey to make it real creamy. Add enough powdered sugar to make a thick dough that will hold together when rolled into balls. Sift equal amounts of unswetened cocoa powder & powdered sugar together in a flat bottomed dish. Roll peanut butter mixture into balls 1/2Tbs. at a time & roll in cocoa mixture, shake off excess & roll again. Place balls in a wax paper lined container & refigerate for 30 minutes.

Or, as we did that day, eat them as soon as they are made!

Some other ideas for these:
add Rice Krispies, mini simi-sweet chocolate chips, or both to the peanut butter mixture before adding the powdered sugar or instead of coating them with the cocoa powder mixture dip them in melted semi-sweet chocolate & roll them in candy sprinkles or crushed peanuts while still wet.

My son & I had a great time making these that day & we were both covered in cocoa powder by the time we finished!

And it's a quick one too! You don't even have to roll them into balls. I just sat down with a bowl of the peanut butter mix & a spoon one night & ate to my hearts(& stomachs) content

Here are some things that both of my kids enjoy making. My 4 yr. old does most of the mixing while my 8 yr. old does the measuring & stuff. About all I do is stand back & give help when they need it & put stuff in the oven & take it out.

Peanut Butter Cookies

1 1/4C. flour
1/4teaspoon salt
1/4teaspoon baking soda
1/2C. butter or margarine, softened
1/2C. peanut butter
1/2C. granulated sugar
1/2C. brown sugar
1 egg

Combine flour, salt, & baking soda, & set aside. In large mixing bowl, mix butter & peanut butter until well blended ; add granulated & brown sugar, mixing well, & beat in egg. Stir flour mixture into peanut butter mixture until well blended. Drop by spoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheet; flatten with a fork, & sprinkle with sugar if desired. Bake at 375 deg. for 10-15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.


Chocolate Chippies

1 pkg. chocolate cake mix
1/4C. butter or margarine, softened
1/3C. milk
1 egg
1 - 6ounce pkg. chocolate chips
1C. chopped nuts

Beat together cake mix, butter, milk, & egg until well blended ; stir in chocolate chips & nuts. Drop by spoonfuls on a greased cookie sheet ; bake at 375 deg. for 12 minutes. Cool on wire rack.


3 Minute Cobbler- It only takes 3 minutes to mix up!

1/2C. butter or margarine
1C. flour
1C. granulated sugar
2teaspoons baking powder
3/4C. milk
1/4teaspoon salt
1 - 16 ounce can fruit pie filling or fruit

Melt butter in a casserole dish. Stir in flour, sugar, baking powder, milk, & salt until all lumps are gone.(A wire whisk is best for this.) Dump the fruit on top, but don't stir it in. Bake for 1 hour at 350 deg.
this is great served warm with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!
