Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Mom would roll the dough out and used a donut cutter to make the circles and 'holes'.
Then she would fry them in a roaster.
We would roll the donuts and holes in cinnamon and sugar as soon as we could touch them!

Some were rolled in powdered sugar because our brother Bobby didn't like cinnamon and sugar!
We loved them as a Fall treat
