  2. Refrigerate overnight.

  3. Remove the dough to a lightly floured surface and roll to about 1/2-inch thick.

  4. Cut out into doughnut shapes or form strips into knots or cruller shapes. Cover and let rise for about 1 hour.

  5. Fry in oil at 360 F until light and browned. Glaze with the following chocolate icing or use your own favorite icing. 


Chocolate or Vanilla Glaze

  1. Melt butter in small saucepan over low heat; add cocoa and water.

  2. Stir constantly until mixture is thick.

  3. Remove from heat; gradually add powdered sugar and vanilla; beat with a whisk until smooth.

  4. Add additional hot water, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, until drizzling consistency.

  5. For vanilla glaze, omit cocoa and add 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla.
