Cheese Doughnuts


There is a tradition to eat foods fried in oil on Chanukah in commemoration of the miracle of the oil lamp, and there is also a tradition to eat dairy foods in honor of Judith, who put an enemy general to sleep by feeding him cheeses that made him thirsty and then plying him with wine; once he was asleep, she killed him. Why not combine the two customs with this dairy doughnut?


Prepare the Doughnuts

1. Combine all ingredients. Knead until smooth and let rest for 10 minutes.
2. Cut into circles with floured rim of glass.
3. Roll to half-inch thickness.
4. Deep fry in hot oil until golden brown. Cool.
5. Sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar.
