“Last December, my Dad was insistent that we make these doughnuts while I was home visiting for the Christmas season. I was so glad that we did because not only are they delicious but they are part of my family's heritage. These doughnuts are made with potatoes, and my Mom's family the Griffins were potato farmers in Mapleton, Maine. These doughnuts bring me back to my roots :)”
