- Dissolve yeast in warm water and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter until creamy. Gradually add flour. Add yeast mixture and blend well. Refrigerate dough until well chilled.
- Spread sugar out on a large piece of waxed paper. Roll walnut-sized balls of dough into the sugar, pressing flat until dough is thin, about the size of a doughnut. Keep flipping dough and pressing into sugar during this stage.
- Place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes, until very lightly browned around the edges. Cool on racks.
