1/2 C+ 2 TB melted butter
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 C warm water

Let rise 1/2 hour. Roll out 3/4 inch thick and cut with donut cutter.
Fry in oil that sizzles when water drops into it. Medium-high temperature. (Don't let it get too hot, it can catch fire) (Don't let little ones help cook these). When donuts begin to get golden, turn them. When light golden on other side, take out and cool on paper towels. Can roll in sugar or dip in a glaze.

For cinnamon rolls:
Roll out dough on floured surface to 1/2 inch thick. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. (4 tsp cinnamon and 1 c sugar).
Roll up like a jelly roll. Use dental floss to cut in 1/2 in thick rolls. Melt 1/4 Butter in jelly roll pan and sprinkle 1/4 cup brown sugar over melted butter. Place cinnamon rolls on pan.
