"One year I entered 18 different baked goods in the county fair and all of them won a ribbon. Here is my favorite prize-winning doughnut recipe. I have been making doughnuts since I was a bride 58 years ago!" —Betty B. Claycomb, Alverton, Pennsylvania
Jill Shramek of Powell, Wyoming adapted a recipe from her Czechoslovakian in-laws to make the dough for these sweet treats in her bread machine. "They are the best baked doughnuts you'll ever eat," she promises. "They're tender and terrific."
These bear claws are absolutely melt-in-your-mouth delicious! It's impossible to resist the delicate pastry, rich almond filling and pretty fanned tops sprinkled with sugar and almonds. I made yummy treats like this when I worked in a bakery years ago.

Just four ingredients are all you'll need for this sure-to-be-popular treat sent in by Ginny Watson of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. Friends and family will never guess that a tube of refrigerated buttermilk biscuits are the base for these golden, jelly-filled doughnuts. TIP: Vary the flavor by using different jams.
