  3. Mix yeast and sugar and let sit for five minutes.
  4. Add flour, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin spice.
  5. Mix on a low speed for about five minutes until dough comes together. It should be a wet and sticky consistency.
  6. Remove the bowl from machine and cover the bowl with a dry towel or plastic wrap and let it rest for one hour.
  7. Add two inches deep of canola oil to a deep pan and heat to 375º.
  8. Add some flour to the top of the dough gently folding it into a ball shape.
  9. Add flour to your counter and roll the dough flat about a half inch thick.

  11. Drop into oil and let it cook for 2-3 minutes turning half way.

You can let them cool, but I love burning my mouth because to me, that is when they are the most enjoyable.
