Step 1: Soften butter Soften the butter to room temperature. Step 2: Make yeast mixture Warm up the water, mix in the yeast, and and 1 teaspoon sugar. Set the mixture aside for 10 minutes, until it's foamy. Step 3: Mix ingredients Pile the flour in a mixing bowl and make a crater in the center. Put the yeast mixture, eggs, butter, salt, nutmeg, and remaining sugar into the crater. Step 4: Form dough Mix the ingredients with a wooden spoon until dough forms, and then knead the dough on a floured surface for eight minutes -- until it springs back when you press it. Step 5: Cover and let rise Put the dough in an oiled bowl, cover it with plastic wrap, and place it in a warm area to rise until it has doubled in size, an hour to an hour and a half. Step 6: Roll dough Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface until it's a 1/4 inch thick. Cut 20 rounds from the dough with the 2 1/2 inch cookie cutter. Then cover with plastic wrap for 15 minutes. Step 7: Heat oil Heat the oil in a saucepan until it reaches 370 degrees Fahrenheit on your deep frying thermometer. Tip Substitute olive oil instead of vegetable oil for a more traditional and healthier version. Step 8: Fry dough Fry the dough rounds, 4 at a time, for about 40 seconds. Transfer them to a paper towel using a slotted spoon. Step 9: Coat and fill Dredge the doughnuts in sugar to coat them, and make a hole in the side of each with the pastry tip. Use the pastry bag and tip to fill them with jelly. Have a happy Hanukkah and enjoy this delicious Jewish holiday treat. Did You Know?
