Andrea Herrera, shared this with me. It's a winner.
1 tablespoon dry yeast (1 pkg.)
4 tablespoon sugar
3/4 cup lukewarm milk (or water for pareve)
2-1/2 cups flour
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 eggs, separated
2 tablespoon butter (or pareve margarine)
Apricot, strawberry or some type of preserves
Mix yeast, 2 tablespoons sugar and milk. Let sit till it bubbles. Sift flour, mix in remaining sugar, salt, cinnamon, egg yolks and yeast mixture.
Knead dough until it forms a ball. Add butter or margarine, knead until butter is well absorbed. Cover with a towel and let rise overnight in fridge.
The next morning: Roll out the dough to a thickness of 1/8 inch. Cut dough into 24 rounds with a juice glass or other object about 2 inches in diameter. Place1/2 teaspoon of preserves in center of 12 rounds. Top with the other 12. Press down at edges, sealing with egg whites. Crimping with the thumb and second finger is best. Let rise for about 30 minutes.
Heat 2 inches of oil to about 375 degrees. Drop the doughnuts into the hot oil, about 5 at a time. Turn to brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels. Roll in sugar.
