Baked Glazed Donuts


3/4 cup milk scalded (brought to boiling point)
remove from heat & add the following
2 TBS shortning
1 tsp. salt
3 TBS. sugar
dash nutmeg
1 tsp. vanilla
Let cool to lukewarm then add the following
2 1/2 cup flour
1 large egg beaten
1 packet yeast dissolved in a small amount of warm water
Beat dough till well mixed. Cover with a cloth & let stand in a warm spot till double about 1 hour. Turn dough out on well floured board & turn well not kneading. Roll & stretch out till 1/2 inch thick. Cut with donut cutter & place in well greased donut pan. If you do not have a donut pan use a greased cookie sheet. Use the donut holes too. I baked them on a cookie sheet.  Brush donuts with melted butter & cover donuts with cloth & again let rise till double, about 20 minutes for this step. Bake in 425 degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Check at 5 minutes mine were done. Remove from oven & let cool about 2 minutes. Dump from pan & dip them in the following glaze.
1/3 cup butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
dash of salt. Put in sauce pan & heat till smooth. Take off of heat & add UP TO 4 TBS. hot water till you get nice dipping consistancy. Not watery & not thick about the texture of pancake syrup. Dip each donut in glaze. OR as soon as donuts are dumped out of their pan brush with melted butter & then dip in granulated sugar or sugar & cinnamon. I LOVE glazed donuts so that is what I made but sugar donuts are a treat to eat too !
