Found this in one of my MIL's old (late 1970's) era Betty Crocker "Picture Cookbooks". The recipe looks lovely, so I decided to post it before we loose it.

I came across this recipe because I accidentally bought some plain yogurt instead of vanilla. This was a great find. They were fairly quick to make and re-heatable. I adore the honey butter, but they can get very fatty very quickly. Highly recommended. I added some more nutmeg to the dough and some cinnamon sugar to the dip for more sweetness.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat eggs on high until well mixed (when they turn about lemon colored), 3 minutes, give or take. Add yogurt and butter, mixing on low.
  2. Once yogurt and butter are well mixed, keep the mixer on low, and *Slowly* add the dry goods--flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg and salt.
  3. Heat 2-3 inches of oil to 360 degrees F/186 degrees C in a heavy frying pan, 3-quart pot, or electric deep fryer.
  4. Drop dough by the teaspoonful (level, if you can) into the oil, and fry till light golden brown, about 2 minutes; drain well.
  5. Serve warm with honey-butter dip (see below).
  6. Honey-Butter Dip: Beat 1/4 cup softened butter and 1/4 cup honey together on medium-low speed until light and fluffy.
