On the day after Christmas my daughter gave to me (tra la la):

A box of a dozen KKs, 20 minutes from the store and the best damned
doughnuts I've ever tasted. There, I've weighed in on KKs and I'll take any
the rest of you don't want.

complemented by a glass of Borden Dutch Chocolate milk...yummmmy~!!!

Oh, dear, I'm sorry! Sounds like you have led a sheltered life.
(IMHO, most of the doughnuts I've tasted are better than KK
greaseballs.)

Nah, KK is sugar coated crap and so is DD. The best doughnuts still come
from the small independent bakeries. People rave a Cinnabon, but they are
mediocre at best. A good cinnamon but can be found at many corner bakeries
when I lived in Philadelphia. You really should get out more and avoid the
chain food places.

IMO, calling KK a doughnut is like calling Bud light beer.

I totally agree. I (and my friends) have always thought of both KK & DD as
"space donuts" (especially KK which seems to use a lot more of the
artificial ingredients and way too much sugar). The little independent
bakeries are hard to beat.

Also, you can lead a horticulture, but you can't make her think.

OBFood: We're going to Culpepper's over by Lake Ray Hubbard (aka L.
Ron Hubbard) to celebrate my daughter's birthday to night. We've
never been there before, but advance reports are good.

OBKreme: D and I bought a few shares not long after it went public,
but sold too soon to make any real money.

I've heard about KK over and over, tried them, was totally
unimpressed...UNTIL, some friends dragged me with them to the shop and
I had them freshly cooked and still hot. OH MY! That was the best
donut I ever had. And I have had many, including those from small mom
& pop bakeries. But maybe in these parts, those places aren't so great
as compared to other places.

The KK donuts i have tried from gas stations, convenience stores and
retail chains just cannot compare to the fresh, hot ones.

And that's their whole marketing campaign, right there! Anybody's donuts
taste that good when freshly cooked and still hot, and many are much, much
better. But they're near impossible to get, more's the shame.

Hey, sometimes you have to "kiss but(t)" so you want the best taste you can
get.

This was posted on RFC a couple of years ago and I lost the attribution.
They are the best I've every had.

Philadelphia Cinnamon Buns


Yield: 14 Buns



Ingredients:



3 1/2 c Flour
1 TB Dry active yeast
1/4 c Tepid water


1/2 c Sugar (approx.)
1/2 Ts Salt
1 c Tepid milk
2 Egg yolks


6 TB Butter, melted
1 1/2 c Light brown sugar
1/2 c Light corn syrup
1/2 c Seedless raisins (I like More)
2 ts Cinnamon




Pour the tepid water into a bowl and sprinkle yeast and 1 tsp. sugar over
it.



Let stand for 2 - 3 minutes, then stir well. Set in warm place for 5
minutes to proof.


Combine 3 cups of the flour, 1/2 cup of sugar and salt in a bowl. Add the
yeast mixture, egg yolks and tepid milk.



With a large spoon, slowly mix the ingredients and continue to stir until
the dough is smooth and can be gathered in a ball. Place the ball on a
lightly floured surface and knead it.



As you knead, sprinkle flour over it by the spoon full adding up to 1/2 cup
more flour if necessary, to make a firm dough. Continue to knead for 10
minutes, or until the dough is smooth, shinny and elastic.



Place the dough in a greased bowl, turning once. Drape the bowl with a
kitchen towel and put it in a warm place for about an hour, or until doubled
in volume.



In a small bowl, mix 3/4 cup of the brown sugar, 2 TB melted butter and the
corn syrup to make a smooth paste. Pour the mixture into two 9 inch round
cake pans, tipping pans to spread it evenly.





In another bowl, mix remaining brown sugar, raisins and cinnamon until well
blended, set aside. Punch the dough down, and on a lightly floured surface,
roll it out into an 18 x 10 inch rectangle, about 1/4 inch thick. Brush the
dough with 2 TB melted butter and sprinkle evenly with raisin-sugar mixture.

Starting at one long side, roll the dough tightly into a cylinder about 18
inches long and 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Then, with a sharp knife, slice
the cylinder crosswise into 14 rounds about 11/4 inches thick. Place one
slice, cut side up, in the center of sugared cake pan, and arrange the
remaining slices in circles of 6 around each center slice. Set the buns in a
draft free place to rise for about 45 minutes or until double in volume.

Preheat the oven to 350F. Brush the tops of the buns with the remaining 2
TB melted butter and bake in center of oven for about 25 minutes or until
golden brown. Place a place over each cake pan, and invert. Let cinnamon
buns cool to luke warm before serving.


The most decadent cinnamon buns around!

Mmm, they sound great. I'll have to remember to find this recipe
when my new printer is up and running. Thanks.

We can say that about chocolate chip cookies too.
