Ingredients

DOUGH

1/4 c
warm water (105f to 115f)
2 pkg
active dry yeast
1 1/2 c
milk
1/2 c
sugar
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp
cinnamon
5 Tbsp
butter
2
eggs
5 c
all purpose flour

SUGAR/SPICE MIX FOR ROLLING

1 c
sugar
1 tsp
cinnamon
1 tsp
nutmeg
oil
for frying

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large bowl.
2
In a saucepan, combine the milk, sugar, salt, cinnamon and butter. (Cut the butter into small pieces for easier melting.) Heat to 110F or lukewarm, but not too hot for the yeast mixture.
3
Add milk mixture with the eggs and 2 cups of flour to the dissolved yeast. Beat until smooth. Beat in remaining flour. The dough will be soft and sticky.
4
Let rise for about 1 hour, stir down.
5
Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface. Roll in flour to coat.
6
With a rolling pin, gently roll into an 8 x 24-inch rectangle. With a sharp knife cut into 1-inch crosswise strips.
7
Bring ends of two strips together and twist strands loosely. Repeat with remaining strips.
8
Let rise on floured board or pan for 20-30 minutes until almost doubled.
9
Heat 1-inch oil in a skillet to 350F. Fry on both sides, about 3 minutes total. Drain.
10
Coat in sugar and spice mixture.
