Old-Fashioned Donuts

These donuts remind me of my childhood with my grandfather who was a cook. He would sit on a stool in front of him and start the long preparation of his donuts. It was Christmas before time! You can’t resist eating all the donuts on the table and you definitely won’t want to share them with anyone.
