Melt the butter over low heat or in the microwave. Arrange in a wide container together with the oil, the eggs, the vanilla, the orange blossom, the salt and the sugar. Beat everything well with a whisk until smooth.

Incorporate the flour with the yeast, mixing gently, until obtaining a smooth and smooth dough, without lumps. Divide in two, form discs and wrap each one in plastic film. Let cool in the fridge for at least 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 175º C and prepare a couple of trays. Roll out one of the portions of the dough with the help of a rolling pin, until it is 5-6 mm thick. Cut out the cookies using a donut cutter, or with a glass and the mouth of a small bottle to remove the hole. Place them on the trays and continue with the rest of the dough.

Bake about 12 minutes, until golden brown. Let them cool completely on a rack. For decoration, mix the icing sugar with the milk and honey in a bowl until it forms a paste. Paint the cookies with it, submerging them completely or drawing irregular shapes. Before it dries, decorate with the colored shavings.

With what to accompany the Easter donuts

These Easter cookies or donuts are ideal to decorate with children, since the icing is very basic and you only have to play with the decorations of noodles or colored balls that they sell in any store. The dough is not very sweet, so it complements the decoration very well, and has a crisp but smooth texture, thanks to the oil. Delicious at any time.
