    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    1 cup milk
    1/4 cup butter
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 package yeast
    2 eggs -- reserve 1 egg white
    3 3/4 cups flour -- * see note
    2 quarts almost boiling water
    1 tablespoon sugar

    Combine milk, butter, sugar, and salt, and heat to 105 115. Add yeast and dissolve for 3 minutes.
    Blend in the two egg yolks and one egg white, and the flour. Knead about 10 minutes, adding more flour if necessary.
    Let rise, covered, in a greased bowl until doubled. (Dough can be prepared in a bread machine to this point.)
    Punch down and divide into 12 to 18 equal pieces. Either form into ropes and overlap to form a ring, or poke a finger through the center of the dough and form into a ring. Let rise, covered, on a floured board for about 15 minutes.
    Bring two quarts of water and one tablespoon sugar almost to boiling. Drop rings in and turn as they surface, cooking 2-3 minutes. Skim out and place on ungreased baking sheet.
    Coat with one beaten egg white. Sesame seeds or poppy seeds can be sprinkled on at this point.
    Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.

    NOTES : *Half whole wheat and half white flour can be used. We usually throw in a handful of dehydrated chopped onion, also.
