I found this recipe in my "Teacher in Space Cookbook". It was submitted by Utah's Teacher in Space, Linda Preston. (I guessed at the yield amount)

I have this recipe from my friend Hazel and they are the best doughnuts. I bake them in mini muffin tins so they are more like doughnut holes. This recipe makes approximately 30 doughnut holes. I just made a double batch, they were gone in days. The only difference in the recipe that I have is that it calls for 1/2 cup shortening. When I made these last week I chopped the apple and partly cooked it before adding it to the dough. Next time I make these I think I'll try adding sour cherries instead of apples. Got to love cherry doughnuts!
