Jelly Donuts ("Sufganiot") Recipe for Hanukkah

Sufganiyot are delicate, airy little rounds of sweet dough, deep fried, filled with jelly and dusted with powdered sugar. They are traditionally served in Hanukkah because they're fried in oil, and Hanukkah is a celebration of the "Miracle of the Oil."

Sufganiot (pronounced soof-guh-nie-yowt, with an emphasis on the last syllable) are quite different than American jelly donuts, in taste and in texture. They are similar to berliners, if you're familiar with those. You basically make a sweet yeast dough, shape it into rounds, deep fry, fill with jelly, then dust with powdered sugar.

Sufganiyot are sinfully delicious and (needless to say) not exactly a health food. It's a good thing we only make them once a year.
