I have made these many times. So quick and easy. I have omitted the spices and dipped in chocolate glaze also.

I have taken these to family get together's and are always first to go. The batch makes plenty.


Enjoy!

Prep:

15 Min

Ingredients

3 Tbsp
butter, softened
3/4 c
sugar
3
eggs
1 c
applesauce
1 tsp
vanilla extract
4 - 1/2 c
all-purpose flour
3 - 1/2 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
salt
3/4 tsp
ground cinnamon
1/4 - 1/2 tsp
ground nutmeg
1/4 c
milk
oil for deep-fat frying
additional cinnamon and sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in applesauce and vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg; gradually add to the creamed mixture alternately with milk (the batter will be thick).
2
In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Drop teaspoonfuls of batter a few at a time into hot oil. Fry until golden brown on both sides, about about 1 minute on each side.

Drain on paper towels; roll in sugar and cinnamon while warm.
