I covered them in a simple powdered sugar glaze with a drop of red food coloring for some extra excitement, but you can just make a white glaze or any other color you like. You can also buy some sugar cookie icing to spread on top instead.
I love that they did come out tasting like a sugar cookie. The flavor is not as strong as it would be for a regular cookie, but the taste is there and in donut form. How cool is that? These would be great to make for a New Year's party, or any party.
