  • Heat vegetable oil to 375F° in a deep fryer or large stockpot. 
  • Prepare a baking sheet with paper towels. 
  • When oil is properly heated, pipe 3-5-inch long sections of dough into the hot oil. Snip off cleanly with scissors. Fry in batches for 2 minutes or until golden brown, flipping halfway through. Drain on paper towels. When cool enough to touch, toss in cinnamon-sugar mixture and transfer to a clean tray.
