Number of Servings: 32

Ingredients

    4-5 cups flour
    2 T yeast
    1 t cinnamon
    1/2 t nutmeg
    1 cup milk, warmed to around 140 degrees
    6 T butter or margarine
    1/2 cup sugar, divided
    1 t salt
    2 eggs

Directions

Mix 2 cups flour with yeast, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Heat the milk, butter, and half the sugar until it reaches 140 F.
Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture, along with the eggs. Mix until smooth.
Add more flour, a little at a time until the dough is smooth.
Cover and let the dough rise in a warm, draft-free area for an hour, until it doubles in size.
Split the dough in half and roll each half into rectangle. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut 16 hearts from each half.
Grease two baking sheets and place the hearts on them. Allow to rise another 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375.
Bake 12-15 minutes, until golden brown.
While still hot, shake donuts in a paper bag filled with the remaining sugar and cinnamon, if desired.

    I made these for family to devour after dinner. Devour them they did!

    I used teaspoon handle to poke a hole in each then a piping bag to squeeze a small amount of jam into each one. Omg the plate was cleared in minutes! Obviously you will have to also track the jam. - 2/17/14
