DIRECTIONS

  • Mix flour, 2 tablespoon sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, salt and cinnamon together.
  • Cut in shortening until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  • Stir in egg and just enough milk so dough leaves side of bowl.
  • Turn dough onto lightly floured surface.
  • Knead lightly 10 times.
  • Roll dough 1/2 inch thick.
  • Cut with floured doughnut cutter.
  • Hold opposite ends of each ring and twirl to form a figure 8.
  • Place bows and buttons (holes) on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Dip into melted butter, then into sugar.
  • I add cinnamon to my sugar usually.
  • I also put sugar in a plastic bag and gently roll it around with the doughnuts inside after dipping in the butter.
