 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       tb           Vegetable shortening
    1       c            Sugar
    2                    Beaten eggs
    4 3/4   c            Flour
    2       ts           Baking powder
    1       t            Salt
      3/4   c            Milk
      1/2   ts           Nutmeg
      1/2   ts           Vanilla powder or
                         -vanilla extract.
   Cream shortening and sugar until fluffy.  Add eggs and
   vanilla if using extract and beat well. Combine dry
   ingredients (including vanilla if using powder) then
   sift together. Add dry mixture to creamed mixture,
   alternating with milk. Roll dough 1/2 inch thick on
   floured board. Cut into rounds, and cut out centers. A
   glass works well for cutting, with a small, empty
   prescription pill bottle to cut the centers. The
   centers can be rolled together for more doughnuts or
   fried as they are for 'donut holes.' Deep fry in
   vegetable oil, turning once, until browned. Drain on
   grocery bag (to absorb oil) and dust with
   confectioner’s sugar. Yield: depends on how thin you
   roll, and what you do with the centers.
