  • 1 quart oil for frying
  • 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon

Step 1

Step 2 
Transfer mixture to large bowl, and stir in flour to make a dough. Knead until smooth, cover and let rise 30 minutes.

Step 3 
In a large heavy skillet or deep fryer, heat 1 inch of oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Step 4 
Roll out 1 to 2 inch balls of dough into thin sheets. Fry sheets 1 to 2 minutes on a side, until puffed and golden. Drain on paper towels.
