Loved them so much as they were growing up they re-named them MAW-MAW/
PAW-PAW DOUGHNUTS, for the simple reason when they were hungry for
Some, they called and MAW-MAW made them and PAW-PAW brought
Them over for them to enjoy. (Which they always did.)
4 Cups Flour
2/3 Teaspoon Salt
3 Teaspoons Baking Powder
ĺ Cup Sugar
1 Teaspoon Grated Nutmeg
2 Tablespoon Melted Shortening
About 1 Cup of Milk
Powdered Sugar (We always used granulated sugar instead.)
Sift together all dry ingredients.† Beat egg until light and use with the melted
Shortening and milk to form a light dough.† Turn onto a floured board.† Roll half-inch thick, cut with doughnut cutter or cut in long strips about 2 inches wide and divide strips into individual parts. Slit them in center through and through about 3 or 4 times.
Drop gently into hot grease.† As soon as the doughnuts rise to the top, turn them over, turning again 2 or 3 times during the cooking process.†
Cook about 3 minutes, until golden brown.† Drain on paper towels and dust with powdered or granulated sugar.
