This week a wolf appeared in my dreams with a bag of dough.
According to the American Indian Medicine Cards: the discovery of power through the ways of animals by Jamie Sams and David Carson— the wolf appears to empower the teacher within us to share our knowledge with others.
Mama Mic’s Magic Dough included promises for recipe variations using the basic dough.
What if I used prepackaged dough— in the refrigerator section of Whole Foods or Trader Joes for about $2.50 a bag? Will it work? Taste OK?
Will the earth start shaking? Will she start shaking it???
It works. If you don’t have the time or inclination to make dough buy it! The texture is different, the taste a little different, but they still disappear as fast as you can make them! Stored forever in your family’s memory bank.
Bring the dough to room temperature in a covered bowl, let it rise and…you have enough for several batches of Long Johns and Cinnamon Balls. Roll the dough into a rectangle. Slice into small rectangles.
Heat Grapeseed oil (use Grapeseed oil because it has a high flash point for frying) about 1 inch deep, when a sprinkle of water into the pan sizzles, the oil is ready. Drop dough rectangles into frying pan.
Fry on one side about 2-3 minutes and turn over.
Remove from pan and place on paper towels to drain excess fat.
In a small bowl mix 1 cup confectioners sugar with 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 2 tablespoons water for a glaze.
Glaze the Long Johns.
Mix 1/2 cup granulated sugar with 2 teaspoons cinnamon in a small bowl.
And start rolling the dough balls.
Our dreams can become our reality.
And I discovered this is…
