  • Turn out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic.
  • Return to the bowl, cover and let rise until doubled.
  • Turn out onto floured surface and roll to 1/8" thickness; cut into strips 2 1/2 wide and cross cut to make squares or diamonds.
  • Cover and let stand for 15 minutes.
  • While dough is resting, heat fat or oil to 365F in your pan or deep-fat fryer.
  • Fry dough pieces about 4 minutes or until a delicate brown.
  • Drain on paper towels; serve hot with maple syrup or your favorite sweet sauce.
