Adapted from Yankee magazine.Another neat recipe I clipped from Yankee's now defunct "recipe with a history" article. According to the article,this recipe was a family favorite for oatmeal bread that they also would often form into balls and drop into oil to make fried dough. One year, for a 4th of July church food booth, they instead used a fish shaped cookie cutter to shape the raw dough, then fried them. and served them dusted with powdered sugar and cinnamon sugar while warm. She said at home they just fried the dough balls and served them warm with maple syrup or honey. And of course, they made the oatmeal bread into regular loaves too. The amount of fish you get will vary greatly depending upon what size cookie cutter you use (and yes - of course you can use different shapes) but is approximately 48 fish from one batch of dough. Prep time/cook times include rising times for the dough. If making the fish, plan ahead as the dough need to chill overnight for them.
