No Fry Doughnuts

No Fry Doughnuts

2 pkg. yeast

1/4 c warm water

1 1/2 c lukewarm milk, scalded then cooled

1/2 c sugar

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. nutmeg

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

2 eggs

1/3 c shortening

5 c flour

In large mixer bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add the next 7 ingredients and 2 cups of flour. Blend 1/2 minute on low speed. Beat
2 minutes on medium speed. Stir in remaining flour until smooth (dough will be sticky). Cover, let rise in warm place until double, 50 to 60 minutes. Turn dough onto well floured board, roll around lightly to coat with flour (dough will be soft to handle). Gently roll out dough about 1/2 inch thick. Cut with floured cutter. Lift doughnuts carefully with spatula and place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheet. Brush with melted butter. Cover. Let rise until double in size, about 20 minutes. Heat oven to 425 and bake 8 to 10 minutes. Immediately brush with melted butter and shake in sugar.
