For the Saturday night LDS General Priesthood session, my family's tradition is to get together after the session, make homemade spudnuts, and talk about what the boys learned. This is one of my favorite traditions and I look forward to it, twice a year. I love it partly cause we get to eat donuts (yum!) but I love the family together time. So I'm posting our family recipe for homemade spudnuts. Even Cory (who doesn't love donuts) thinks these are delicious.

It makes A LOT, which is why we usually only do half a batch.
