    Applesauce Doughnuts

    3 1/2 cups flour
    1 cup applesauce
    3/4 cup sugar
    2 tbsps. shortening
    3 tsps. baking powder
    1 tsp. ground cinnamon
    1/2 tsp. salt
    2 eggs
    Vegetable oil
    Cinnamon-sugar mixture, if desired

    Beat 1 1/3 cups of the flour and the remaining ingredients except oil and cinnamon-sugar mixture in large bowl with electric mixer on low speed, scraping bowl constantly, until blended. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scrapting bowl occasionally. Stir in remaining 2 cups flour. Cover and refrigerate about 1 hour or until dough stiffens.

    Heat oil (2 to 3 inches) in deep fryer or 3 quart saucepan to 375. Divide dough in half. Place half of the dough on well-floured cloth-covered surface; gently roll in flour to coat. Gently roll dough 3/8 inch thick. Cut with floured doughnut cutter. Repeat with remaining dough.

    Slide doughnuts into hot oil, using wide spatula. Turn doughnuts as they rise to surface. Fry 1 to 1 1/2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Carefully remove from oil (do not prick surfaces); drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture.
