Maple-Glazed Brown Sugar Doughnuts
Makes 1 dozen

For the doughnuts:
3 c. self rising flour
1/4 c. light brown sugar
1 stick salted butter, frozen 1 1/4 c. buttermilk, chilled Peanut oil, for frying

For the glaze:
2 c. confectioners sugar, sifted 2 T. whole milk
1/4 c. pure maple syrup
1/2 t. maple extract, optional

Heat 1" oil in a large, heavy-bottomed pot to 350 degrees.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together flour and brown sugar. Grate butter into mixture and stir until butter is coated and evenly dispersed throughout the flour mixture. Pour in buttermilk and stir until dough is just combined.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and shape into a rough rectangle. Roll out to 1/2" thickness, dusting with additional flour as necessary. Fold the dough in half and roll back to 1/2" thickness; repeat folding and rolling process 5 more times. Using TK" and TK" round cutters, cut out doughnuts, rerolling scraps if necessary to get a dozen, and set aside.

When oil is hot, fry doughnuts in batches, about 2 minutes per side, until golden brown. Allow to cool on a wire rack set over a half sheet tray.

In a medium bowl, whisk together confectioners sugar, milk, maple syrup, and maple extract, if using, until completely smooth (glaze should be roughly the consistency of glue; adjust as necessary with more confectioners sugar if glaze is too thin, or more milk if too thick). Carefully dip the top half of each doughnut into the glaze and return to wire rack. Allow glaze to set, about 5 minutes, before serving.
