An Ono Treat

Since we don't have enough money to visit the islands every year, we take a family outing to the Annual Aloha Festival hosted by the PICA at San Francisco's Presidio. This year was the 14th year! We love this and are there every year. The food is always 'ono' (where else could you get a fresh malasada?), the music is fantastic, and the shopping is choice. We always love watching the local and not-so-local halaus doing what they do best. The weather, as usual, was foggy since we were by the beach but it was warm enough that it didn't drizzle like last year.

Yes-Yes got to visit his favorite vendor, a man that carves and sells beautiful pendants and other things out of wood and bone including mammoth tusk! I, as usual, bought my share of Kelly's Kookies and said hello to Gwen, of Classic Hawaiian Designs, where I buy all of my jewelry. No money this year though.

Keeping with the theme of the day, I thought I'd share a quick and easy trick I found a while back. If you like malasadas, or just any kind of doughnut, try this one. Don't can fill these with anything you'd like too. Mmmmm

Easy Malasadas

Cooking Oil
Pillsburry Buttermilk Biscuit Dough

Cooking Instructions:

Heat oil in a small sauce pan, medium heat, for about 8 minutes. Put a wooden chopstick in the pot. When the tip starts to bubble when inserted it's hot enough! Pop the Pillsbury roll, and put in the individual pieces (it's pre cut) into the hot oil. Cook on each side for a few minutes (light brown) and when it's done place them on a paper towel to drain the oil. Roll the warm malasadas in sugar (and fill if you want to), and serve!

Sounds good! Now I'm I've made something kind of like this, but I have always punched a hole in the middle of the biscuit and spread it apart a little bit, so when I cook it then it turns out like a donut shape. Then I dip it in a powder sugar & milk mixture for the glaze.
