Melt butter in boiling water. Add milk. Dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir well. Add eggs, vanilla, sugar, salt and flour. Knead for 5 minutes. Rest dough - 10 minutes. Roll 1/4 inch thick. Cut in 1x6 inch strips. Lay on wax paper. Let rise until double in bulk and fry like donuts.
Frosting: Melt 1/2 cup butter. Add 1/2 cup brown sugar and boil a few minutes. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla or maple flavoring and 2 tablespoons cream. Add powdered sugar to spread. Makes 5 dozen. Can be stored and frozen in freezer.
