...that resemble a beaver's tail.A doughnut dough. Not too sweet, not too rich, stretched and briefly fried (forget a deep fryer - I use my wok and tongs). Add a bit of sugar and a touch of cinnamon. Fresh from the fryer or even room temperature, these are the next best thing to being at a country fair. You may have encountered the same sort of treat under different appellations (beavers often figure in the name). A bread machine does a great job with this recipe. Commercial places often use jam on these or a smear of apple pie filling.
