  • Christmas Doughnuts Recipe
    Making these doughnuts has long been a custom in my French Canadian family. I remember helping with these tender treats as a child and eating the "holes" with my sister and brother. I loved their hint of lemon flavor! Carrying on the tradition, my husband, children and I have made these yummy doughnuts every Christmas for many years.—Michelle Vander Byl, Portland, Ontario
