    Heat oven to 450°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper. Place dough on generously floured surface. Roll dough in flour to coat. With floured rolling pin, roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut dough with floured 1 3/4-inch round cookie cutter. Place dough rounds on cookie sheets about 1 inch apart. Cut out centers using floured 3/4-inch round cookie cutter. Reroll scraps to cut additional doughnuts.

    In small bowl, stir together 3/4 cup sugar and 3 tablespoons cinnamon. Place melted butter in another small bowl. Quickly dip both sides of each warm doughnut into butter; let excess drip off. Using spoon, roll each doughnut in cinnamon-sugar mixture to coat. Return doughnuts to cooling rack. Serve warm.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Refrigerating the dough makes it easier to roll, but extra flour is still needed to keep the dough from sticking to the counter and rolling pin. Shake off any excess flour before placing the dough rounds on the cookie sheet.
  • tip 2
    Cream of tartar helps add the signature "snickedoodle" texture and flavor to these doughnuts, distinguishing them from the regular cinnamon-sugar variety.
