  3. With a hand mixer, beat in eggs one at a time until incorporated.
  4. Fill a piping bag fitted with a large star tip and set aside.
  5. In a large pot, heat 2in of oil to 375 degrees. Then begin piping strips of dough - cutting with a scissor in desired lengths into the hot oil. Do not overcrowd. Fry until golden and transfer to a paper towel.
  6. Toss with Cinnadust.
  7. Plate and enjoy.
