      This recipe made it into Book #179627 These were out of this world delicious. The nutmeg added just the right flavor. We had to add additional flour to make dough smooth as recipe stated, they did not rise on the first setting, and only a bit on the second, but it didn't seem to matter. We brushed melted butter on them out of the oven, and ate them warm. These were wonderful. We had them with cups of hot apple cider. Great Job Nyteglori! -2Bleu-
