  • 2 cups warm water
  • 1 package dry yeast
  • ¼ cup shortening
  • 3 oz. sugar
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 egg
  • 6 cups flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 t. cinnamon


Mix water and yeast and set aside. Cream shortening, sugar, salt and egg and add to yeast and water mixture. Add three cups of flour, one cup at a time. Mix well. Add three more cups of flour, one cup at a time, until dough is easy to work with. Knead, cover with wet towel and let double in size. Shape into moon crater shapes. Be sure that you make a few holes in your craters. Otherwise, your moon crater will absorb the grease. Fry in hot oil, turning it until all sides are light brown. Drain on paper towel. In a separate bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture and serve to all of your Martians!
