  1. Combine powdered sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
  2. Using a food processor, place knife blade in bowl. Add nuts; process until finely chopped. Add flour and next 4 ingredients; cover with lid, and process 30 seconds, or until mixture is smooth.
  3. Pour oil to depth of 1/2 inch in a large skillet. Heat to 375*F. over medium-high heat. Cover the bottom of opening of funnel with your finger.(A funnel with a 3/8" opening works best.)Pour 1/4 cup batter into funnel; hold funnel over skillet. Remove your finger from funnel end to release batter into hot oil, moving funnel in a slow circle so batter forms a spiral.
  4. Fry each funnel cake 1 minute or until the edges are golden brown; turn and fry until golden. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining batter. Sprinkle powdered sugar mixture over warm funnel cakes using a sieve or shaker. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
