Buttons & Bows (Baked Sugar & Spice Doughnuts)

2 cups buttermilk baking mix (Bisquick)

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

1/3 cup milk

1 egg

1/4 cup butter, melted

1/2 cup granulated sugar, for rolling doughnuts in


Preheat oven to 400°F. 


In a medium bowl, mix together Bisquick, sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, milk, and egg until soft dough forms. 


Turn dough out onto a lightly floured counter. Roll dough into a ball and knead five times. Roll 1/2-inch thick and cut with floured doughnut cutter.


To make bows, hold opposite sides of each ring with fingers and twist to form figure-eights.


Place doughnut holes (buttons) and bows on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until done and just starting to turn golden brown. 


Immediately after baking, dip each button and bow into melted butter, then roll in sugar (be careful not to burn your fingers!). Serve warm. 


Makes about 12 buttons & bows.
