Each year at reunion picnic everyone heads for Marian's fireplace for fried dough. It has been a tradition for many years. A good start for the day!! Here's the recipe. 3 tbsp. (or 3 pkgs.) yeast 1/3 c. melted margarine 1 flat tbsp. salt 3/4 c. honey (or sugar) 4 c. flour Add yeast to warm water. Let stand about 5 minutes (until bubbly). Add melted margarine, salt, honey or sugar and flour. Beat all together until smooth. Then add enough flour to make a firm dough. Hand knead for 8 or 10 minutes. This makes a very large batch! Fry in hot oil about 30 seconds, then turn once. Drain on brown paper bags. Shake with confectioners' sugar and let the crowd dig in.

NOTE: I use a very old iron kettle for frying several at a time. I also take the dough to the picnic in a large clear plastic bag inside a cooler.
