When my grandmother made these she started the dough in the morning and let it rise all day. Right after dinner she would fry them up. Well with the grocery stores today, they have made it so much easier when you can find good quality pre-made products ready to cook. I purchase the dough and just let it rise prior to frying. That is so much easier. My new saying is. Work smarter not harder.
Cut dough into 1/4's
gently spread apart with fingers.
