Krispy Kreme Donuts

    Ingredients :
    2 cups scalded milk
    1/2 cup butter
    2/3 cup sugar, divided
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons yeast
    4 eggs (beaten)
    1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
    7 cups sifted flour
    3 cups powdered sugar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    1/2 cup cold water
    Directions :
    Mix together ingredients for glaze. Melt butter in hot milk, add 1 tsp sugar and salt. Allow to cool. Beat in yeast, nutmeg, eggs, remaining sugar, and 3 cups flour. Add rest of flour (dough will be sticky).
    Knead for 5 minutes then allow to rise for 1-1 1/2 hours. Roll out dough, cut into shapes. Do not re-roll dough, then allow to rise for 30-45 minutes. Heat oil to 365° and fry 1 – 2 minutes on each side or until brown. Toss in the doughnut holes first, let those cook, and then proceed to cooking the donuts. Let them cool on a paper towel – helps get the glaze to stick. Dip in warm glaze.
