"easy" doughnut holes

I have been asked for doughnut holes again.  I really do not mind making them but when the request comes out of the blue, it can be more work then I wish.  But what if I am making bread anyhow?  And bread based on my the dough from my favorite hot cross buns or cranberry walnut buns?   Because sometimes that is the bread that is wished.

I rolled off 24 small balls of dough.  Let them rise.  And fried them at about 350 degrees Fahrenheit until they were golden and baked through.

I made a glaze from powdered sugar and milk with a touch of vanilla for these.  The household thought these were wonderful.  I still think the potato doughnut holes are better but that is me.  The recipe is very similar except for the addition of mashed potato.  But I have also been enjoying lefse more then tortillas lately.  My taste buds must have changed.

Easy?  Just because the bread was already being made.  And it made people happy.
