2 packages yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1-1/2 cups scalded, cooled milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup shortening
4-1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup melted margarine
Cinnamon sugar for topping
In large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add milk, next six ingredients and 2 cups of the flour. Blend 30 seconds, scraping the bowl constantly. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed. Stir in remaining flour until smooth. Cover and let rise until double in size, about 1 hour.
Turn dough onto a well-floured board. Roll dough around to coat with flour. (Dough will be soft.)
Cut with floured doughnut cutter or 2 1/2x1-inch cans. Lift carefully with spatula and place 2 inches apart on greased baking sheet. Brush with melted margarine.
Cover and let rise until doubled (about 20 minutes).
Bake 8 to 10 minutes in 425-degree oven or until golden.
Immediately brush with melted margarine and shake in cinnamon sugar.
