4 1/2 cups flour -- white
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 cup fruit juice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 large egg
1 jar jam -- jelly or powdered sugar -- sifted
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 Cup vegetable oil -- for deep-frying

Preparation / Directions:

Sift together flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Beat together till smooth eggs, oil, and fruit juice (raspberry juice is great, apple juice will do). Add to the flour mixture and stir to make a soft dough. Form dough into flat cakes (about 3 dozen). Place 1/2 tsp. of jelly (again, raspberry is wonderful, but any jelly or jam can be used) in the center of each and roll dough to cover jelly, forming a ball. Deep-fry balls in hot (380F) oil for 4-5 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Dust with powdered sugar.
