No shaping with these, just drop in hot oil from a tablespoon, if desired you can cut them with a doughnut cutter, but you really don't have to bother, they are just as delicious made into any shape.... they are just fantastic! Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired. Plan ahead the dough mixture has to be refrigerated for 2 hours before frying. Cooking time depends on how large the dough balls are.
