Super excited that my Pilgrim Donut Ships were featured in the November 2013 issue of Taste of Home Magazine!

The pilgrims ate mostly cured meat and biscuits on the Mayflower, but I bet they would have loved these tasty little mini donut ships. This is a great edible craft for kids to make while they are learning the history of Thanksgiving!
