Favorite Doughnuts

Here's a recipe I (Victoria) made this week, and since they didn't last long, I assure you they are tasty!

Betty Crocker's Favorite Doughnuts:

Beat thoroughly:
4 egg yolks (or 2 whole eggs)

Beat in:
1 cup sugar
2 tbsp. soft shortening
3/4 cup buttermilk

Stir in:
3 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp.nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Turn onto generously floured board. Roll out 1/3 inch thick. Let rest 20 minutes.

Cut with doughnut cutter. (I used a biscuit cutter)

Fry in hot oil until brown. (Temperature should be about 375 degrees).

Drain on a paper towel. Serve plain, sugared, or glazed.

I did our doughnuts in melted baking chocolate and then sprinkled them with red and white sparkling sugars.
