Recipe

-Vegetable oil, for frying 3 1/3 c Flour, all-purpose

1 c Sugar

3 ts Baking powder

1/2 ts Salt

1/2 ts Cinnamon, ground

1/4 ts Nutmeg,ground

2 tb Shortening (I use Crisco)

2 Eggs

3/4 c Milk

Heat oil (2-3" deep) in deep-fat fryer or heavy kettle to 375. Beat 1 1/2 c. of the flour and the remaining ingredients in large mixer bowl, on low speed, scraping bowl constantly, 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed, scrape occasionally, 2 min. Stir in remaining flour. Turn dough onto well-floured cloth-covered board; roll around to lightly coat with flour. Roll gently 3/8" thick. Cut with floured doughnut cutter. Slide doughnuts into hot oil

with wide spatula. Turn doughnuts as they rise to surface. Fry until golden brown, 1-1 1/2 min. on each side. Remove from oil; do not prick doughnuts. Drain on paper towels. Serve plain, sugared, or frosted. 2 Dozen Doughnuts. I shake them in a bag of powdered sugar. MMMmmmmmmmmmm Good!!!! Only one problem with this recipe......it doesn't make enough!! These doughnuts are so good that once you start eating them, you can't stop!
