1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
2/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, cut into pieces
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 (1/4-ounce) packages active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water (105°F to 115°F)
7 to 8 cups all-purpose flour
4 large Land O Lakes® Eggs
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons honey
Combine sugar, milk, butter and salt in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat 3-4 minutes until butter melts. Cool to warm (105°F to 115°F).
Dissolve yeast in warm water in bowl. Add cooled milk mixture, 4 cups flour and eggs. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until moistened. Beat 3 minutes at medium speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to form soft dough.

Punch down dough; divide in half. Roll each half to 1/2-inch thickness on lightly floured surface. Cut out doughnuts with lightly floured 3-inch doughnut cutter. Place doughnuts on greased baking sheets. Cover; let rise 30-45 minutes or until double in size.
