Whether you want something sweet or savory, this fried dough recipe will surely hit the right spot with its chewy dough and crispy exterior. They take 15 minutes to make from scratch, so they're perfect for a quick, tasty snack, and best of all, the recipe uses JUST 6 pantry ingredients!
Heating the oil to the right temperature is key for perfect fried dough. The dough fries nicely when the oil is 350 degrees F, so buy a thermometer to make temperature gaging easier.
Don't try to cook all the dough disks at the same time, as the temperature of the oil will drop, and they will not cook evenly. Cook in small batches to create that perfectly light brown color and crispy exterior.
