Jelly doughnuts, also known as sufganiyot, are a traditional Hanukkah dessert. You can enjoy making them as a treat anytime!

Step 1: Soften butter
Soften the butter to room temperature.

Step 2: Make yeast mixture
Warm up the water, mix in the yeast, and and 1 teaspoon sugar. Set the mixture aside for 10 minutes, until it's foamy.

Step 3: Mix ingredients
Pile the flour in a mixing bowl and make a crater in the center. Put the yeast mixture, eggs, butter, salt, nutmeg, and remaining sugar into the crater.

Step 4: Form dough
Mix the ingredients with a wooden spoon until dough forms, and then knead the dough on a floured surface for eight minutes -- until it springs back when you press it.

Step 5: Cover and let rise
Put the dough in an oiled bowl, cover it with plastic wrap, and place it in a warm area to rise until it has doubled in size, an hour to an hour and a half.

Step 6: Roll dough
Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface until it's a 1/4 inch thick. Cut 20 rounds from the dough with the 2 1/2 inch cookie cutter. Then cover with plastic wrap for 15 minutes.

Step 7: Heat oil
Heat the oil in a saucepan until it reaches 370 degrees Fahrenheit on your deep frying thermometer.

Substitute olive oil instead of vegetable oil for a more traditional and healthier version.

Step 8: Fry dough
Fry the dough rounds, 4 at a time, for about 40 seconds. Transfer them to a paper towel using a slotted spoon.

Step 9: Coat and fill
Dredge the doughnuts in sugar to coat them, and make a hole in the side of each with the pastry tip. Use the pastry bag and tip to fill them with jelly. Have a happy Hanukkah and enjoy this delicious Jewish holiday treat.
