    Title: Oswald Rivera's Berliner/Paczki/Jelly Donuts
    Categories: Breads, Fruits
    Yield: 15 servings

    2 Envelopes active dry yeast
    1/2 c Warm water
    1 c Warm milk
    3/4 c Sugar
    1/2 ts Vanilla extract
    1/2 ts Salt
    4 c All-purpose flour; more for
    - dusting
    1/3 c Butter; softened
    5 c Oil for frying; more for
    - coating a bowl
    13 1/2 oz Jar strawberry or fruit jam
    Powdered sugar; for
    - finishing

    In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in warm water and
    let it stand for about 5 minutes or until foamy.

    In a large bowl, combine the yeast mixture, milk, sugar,
    vanilla, salt, and flour. Mix the ingredients until
    smooth and soft but not sticky. If using a mixer, mix on
    low speed for a few minutes until a shaggy dough forms.
    Add the butter, increase speed to medium, and mix until
    dough is smooth.

    Grease another large bowel with oil. Form the dough into
    a ball. Place dough in the bowl, turning to coat with
    oil. Cover with plastic wrap or a damp towel. Set aside
    in a warm spot and let rise until doubled in size, about
    1 to 1 1/2 hours.

    Lightly flour a baking sheet or surface (a large wooden
    square block is perfect for this). Turn the dough onto
    the floured surface and, using a rolling pin, roll out
    until about 1/2" thick. Using a lightly floured 2" round
    biscuit cutter, cut out as many rounds as possible
    (should have 25 or more). Place on a lightly floured
    sheet or surface, spacing them apart. Again, loosely
    cover with plastic wrap or a damp towel, and let rise
    until doubled in size, about 20-30 minutes.

    Heat the oil in a deep-fryer, large skillet, or large
    pot to 350°F/175°C. Using a flat spatula, carefully
    slide the dough rounds into the hot oil and, working in
    batches to avoid overcrowding, fry until they rise to
    the surface, then turn over and fry until puffy and
    golden brown (2-3 minutes). Drain on paper towels.

    When the donuts have cooled, using a paring knife, cut a
    small slit in the side of the donut, and fill this
    center with jelly (about 1 tablespoon), using a pastry
    injector, syringe, piping bag, or small spoon. Sprinkle
    with powdered sugar and serve immediately.
