2. Using the fork tines, pierce the dough through the center of the circle and turn the dough so that it is just a quarter’s twist.
3. Take a heavy Dutch oven or a deep fat fryer add 2 inch salad oil and heat to register 360°F on a deep-frying thermometer.
4. Add 3 to 4 twists at a time and fry these till they turn golden brown on either sides. Arrange as a single layer on foil sheets.
5. Take a small saucepan, place on high heat and bring the corn syrup to boil. Lower the heat to minimum and allow to simmer for 5 minutes.

6. Top twists with the corn syrup, garnish with chopped pecans, allow to set and serve in serving plates.
