    Sarah_Star's Note:

    These are better than the original! Be very careful with the dough as it is very delicate.

      This recipe is ok, I had no troubles with it as far as the consistency of the dough or anything like that. But the resulting doughnuts were too dense and a little chewy. And they taste NOTHING like a Krispy Kreme doughnut.

      I was very surprised how loose and wet the dough was. There was no way i was going to be able to roll that with out a huge mess.

      I was so disappointed! These donuts tasted like bread rolls in a sugar glaze. Definitely not a Krispy Kreme!:-(
