Ingredients

  • 2 ½ teaspoons active dry yeast

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • ¾ cup warm milk (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 egg yolks

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened

  • ½ cup drained cottage cheese

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 4 cups vegetable oil for frying

  • ½ cup confectioners' sugar

Directions

  1. Dissolve the yeast and 2 tablespoons white sugar in the warm milk.

  2. Sift flour into a large bowl. Make a well in the center and add the yeast mixture, egg yolks, salt, nutmeg, butter, and remaining sugar. Stir flour into center. Once combined turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface knead until dough is elastic. Cover and let dough rise overnight in the refrigerator.

  3. Remove dough from the refrigerator and roll on a lightly floured surface to 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into 2-inch rounds. Cover and let rise for about 15 to 20 minutes.

  4. In a medium bowl combine the cottage cheese, egg, 3 tablespoons white sugar, and vanilla. Beat until well combined.

  5. Form dough rounds into a ball and insert about 2 teaspoons of cheese filling into each of the rounds.

  6. In a heavy pot, pour in oil to about the 2 1/2 inch mark. Heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Drop sufganiot (doughnuts) into the oil in batches, turning when browned. Drain on paper towels and roll in confectioners' sugar.
