ADAMSTOWN, Md. (AP) - A frosting of snow is delaying the doughnuts at a little country church near Adamstown.

Seventy-year-old Martha Norwood of Flint Hill United Methodist said Monday that the church is postponing until Saturday its pre-Lenten tradition of frying up hundreds of kinklings.

Kinklings are raised, rectangular doughnuts dusted with powdered sugar that are usually eaten on Shrove Tuesday.

Norwood says the 5- to 7-inch snowfall in her area made it too hard for doughnut-makers to get together Monday for the all-night effort.

She says the church took orders for 118 dozen kinklings. That’s about 1,400 doughnuts.

Norwood says only three customers canceled their orders after hearing the news. She says the rest will pick up their kinklings on Saturday.
