Recipe Notes

*The dish you choose for this recipe will greatly effect the texture and cook time of the dough. If your dough is touching you will get really soft donut holes that need a little more bake time, but if your dough has some space in between you'll get a crispier and more even result. The next time I make these I'll probably try them in a larger dish so that there's a little more space in between each dough ball.
