elastic. Brush additional melted butter lightly over top of dough and
cover with waxed paper. Drape tea towel over top of bowl and put it
in a warm place to rise for 2 hours. Then refrigerate overnight (not
necessary, but chilling the dough will make it easier to roll out).

cut with floured donut cutter; put them on well buttered waxed paper
on cookie sheet. Do other half of dough - put cookie sheet in a warm
place till donuts double in size, about 1 hour. Heat 4" of oil for
deep frying - 365 degrees on thermometer. Regulate heat to keep
temperature steady. Gently remove donuts with spatula into hot oil,
turning once, till golden. Drain them on paper towels. While still
warm cover with: granulated sugar or chocolate (melt 3 ounces
semisweet chocolate and 3 ounces butter;stir in 3/4 cup confectioners
sugar; frost) or glaze (mix together 1 cup confectioners sugar, 2
tbsp fresh lemon juice and 1 tbsp honey; glaze).
