to 12 Donuts
pumpkin pie spice
Oil for frying
Cream together sugars and butter.
Mix in egg, vanilla, pumpkin, and buttermilk.
Add salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice.
Slowly mix in flour until the dough is easy to work with and can be rolled out without sticking on a lightly floured surface.
Fill the frying pan with 3 inches of oil and heat to 350 degrees. Make sure you use a thermometer because the wrong temperature will ruin the donuts.
Roll out to about 1/4 inch thick on a floured surface.
Cut out large circles (I used a pub glass) .
Then make the holes (I used a medecine cup)

Drop donuts in frying pan two at a time. Fry for one minute and then flip. Fry an additional 1 to 2 minutes.
Do not over cook.
Place on paper towels to cool.
