  6. Place ½ cup cup of dough on plastic wrap. Add another sheet of plastic wrap on the top half and gently press down to flatten the ball of dough.
  7. Cut donuts with a donut cutter, remove plastic wrap, and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover and let rise for 20 minutes.

  8. Heat oil to 275-300ºF and use a candy thermometer to monitor the temperature. Place donut in the hot oil and fry for about 1- 1 ½ minutes on each side. Until it is golden brown. Carefully transfer to a cooling rack and allow to cool for 20 minutes before frosting.
