I made these for a little Oscar Party this weekend and they were GLORIOUS! I loved them. I found the texture and taste to be just perfect. A nice crunch on the outside and a soft, doughy inside. It took about an hour for my dough to rise completely and another half hour once they were dunked in the baking soda solution. These were a huge hit. I'll definitely be making them again!
