  2. Cream Butter and Sugar: Using a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, beat butter and granulated sugar for about 3 minutes.
  3. Incorporate Eggs and Sour Cream: Mix in egg yolks until light and thick. Alternately add dry ingredients and sour cream in three separate additions, finishing with the flour.
  4. Chill Dough: Cover the sticky dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  5. Roll and Cut: Roll out the chilled dough to 1/2 inch thickness on a floured surface. Cut out donuts using a cutter, obtaining around 12 donuts.

For the Glaze:

  1. Prepare Glaze: Whisk together all glaze ingredients until smooth.
  2. Coat Donuts: Using a pastry brush, coat each donut with the glaze.
  3. Allow Curing: Place a wire rack over a sheet pan, allowing a 20-minute resting period for the glaze to cure.
