1 Cup Apple Cider
1 Cup Granulated Sugar
1/4 Cup Solid Vegetable Shortening
2 Large Eggs
1/2 Cup Buttermilk
3 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
Vegetable Oil or Shortening (For Frying)

2 Cups Confectioner?s Sugar
1/4 Cup Apple Cider
(We used a Cinnamon Sugar mixture to coat our doughnuts with. We used: 1 Cup Granulated Sugar with 1 tsp. Cinnamon. Mix well. Coat doughnuts in sugar while they?re still warm.)
Boil apple cider in a small saucepan until it is reduced to 1/4 cup, 8 to 10 minutes; cool. Beat sugar with shortening until smooth. Add eggs and mix well, then add buttermilk and reduced cider. Stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg in another bowl. Add to liquid ingredients; mix just enough to combine. Transfer dough to a lightly floured board and pat to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with 2 1/2 to 3 inch doughnut cutter; reserve doughnut holes and re-roll and cut scraps. Add enough oil or shortening to fill a deep pan 3 inches; heat to 375 degrees F. Fry several doughnuts at a time, turning once or twice, until browned and cooked through, about 3-4 minutes. Remove to paper towels with a slotted spoon. For glaze: mix confectioner?s sugar and cider. Dip doughnuts while warm, serve warm.
Yield: 15-18 Doughnuts
