Homemade Jelly Doughnuts (hugsandcookiesxoxo)

2 pkgs active dry yeast
1/2 c warm water
1/2 c warm 2% milk
1/3 c butter, softened
1 1/3 c sugar, divided
3 egg yolks
1 t salt
3 – 3 3/4 c flour
jelly or jam
oil for deep-fat frying

In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a large bowl, combine the milk, butter, 1/3 c sugar, egg yolks, salt, yeast mix and 3 c flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (do not knead). Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 min. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead about 10 times. Divide dough in half. Roll each portion to 1/4″ thickness; cut with a floured 2 1/2: round cutter. Place on greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 min. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375° F. Fry doughnuts, a few at a time, for 1 – 2 min on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Roll warm doughnuts in remaining sugar. Use pastry bag and long tip to inject jam. Yield: 16 doughnuts.
