  2. Gradually add flour, blending well.
  3. Add yeast mixture; blend well.
  4. Refrigerate dough until chilled.
  5. Put sugar on a large piece of wax paper. Pinch off pieces of chilled dough the size of small walnuts and shape into balls. Working with one ball of dough at a time, press ball flat into sugar until dough is thin. Keep flipping dough over and pressing it into sugar, until it is the size of a flat doughnut. Place on ungreased baking sheets.
  6. Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until very lightly browned.
