  6. Wrap the ball in plastic wrap and rest it on the counter for 30 minutes.
  7. Unwrap the dough and knead for an additional 3 minutes.
  8. Take a handful of dough and flatten it into a rectangular shape. Pass the dough through a pasta roller attachment on a #2 setting, filing the sheets over several times. The first few passes of dough may have holes.
  9. Once the dough passes through with no holes, lay it on a lightly floured work surface and cut out the mask shapes with a cookie cutter, re rolling any extra dough.
  10. Heat 1 inch of frying oil and fry the cut out masks till golden. Transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet.
  11. In a saucepan, heat honey over low heat and brush the masks. Decorate with colored nonpareils.
