    You'll Need:
    2/3 cup sugar, divided
    1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    1/8 tsp nutmeg
    1/4 cup ( stick) butter, softened
    2 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup milk
    * Vegetable oil for frying


    In a shallow dish, combine 1/3 cup sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon; set aside.

    In a mixing bowl cream sugar and butter, then add eggs and vanilla, blending well. Add in 1 cup flour, the baking powder, and salt; mixing well. Add remaining flour, cinnamon and nutmeg, forming a soft dough.

    Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead gently for 1 or 2 minutes, until dough is smooth, kneading in additional flour if dough is still too sticky to handle.

    Roll out the dough to 1/2-inch thickness, flouring the surface and the rolling pin lightly, if the dough sticks. Cut dough with a 2-inch round cookie cutter.

    In a heavy pan, heat 2 inches of oil over medium heat, until hot but not burning or smoking (350 degrees F).

    Fry donuts a few at a time, not touching, turning often with tongs, until puffy and golden, 1-1/2 to 2 minutes.


    Drain on paper towels and toss in cinnamon/sugar mix while still hot.
