       We are getting our FAT TUESDAY on; Amish Style here in Lancaster PA ! Soft as a cloud donut with a CRISPY outer crust, that's what I'm talking about!
 This is our TRADITION for Shrove Tuesday the day before our Lenten Season. We use up all the fats & sugars by making a big batch of FASNACHTS & eat them up because we have 40 days of fasting ahead. 
  One batch makes this many Fasnachts to coat with powdered sugar or eat them like this but dipped in Molasses the old fashioned way! This recipe is in the 2011 February Archive. if you never tried one of our Fasnachts you have missed out on one of our best treats!
