"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Personal Notes:
This was a very old recipe typed on an index card. The recipe doesn't give specifics on rolling and cooking method, temperature, or time. Now there are doughnut pans for baking readily available in stores like Bed, Bath, and Beyond.
