Baked Donuts!

So, this is not really a dinner recipe, but it's one of our favorites! You will LOVE these... so easy and delicious! I would make a bet that you literally can't eat just one! Serve these warm with milk ~ YUMMY!
4 tsp active dry yeast
1/4 c warm water
1 1/2 c milk
1/2 c sugar
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinamon
2 eggs
1 tsp nutmeg
1/3 c shortening
4 1/2 c flour
1/4 c butter, melted
Scald milk and allow to cool to lukewarm. In large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water (6-10 min.). Add milk, sugar, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, eggs, shortening, and 2 c flour. Blend on low speed, scraping constantly. Beat 2 min. on medium speed. Stir in remaining flour until smooth. Cover and let rise until doubled (50-60 min.). Turn dough on well-floured board, roll dough about 1/2" thick. Cut donuts, brush with melted butter. Cover and let rise until doubled (20 min.). Heat oven to 425 degrees. Bake 8-10 min. until golden brown. Spread with creamy glaze.
Creamy Glaze
1/3 c butter
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 c powdered sugar
2-3 Tbps water
Melt butter. Blend in powdered sugar and vanilla. Stir water in 1 Tbps at a time until well mixed and blended.
**If using for baked donuts, you'll need to make a few batches of this recipe.
