1/4 cup soft butter
1 cup sugar
2 egg yolks, beaten
1 whole egg, beaten
4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon soda
3/4 cup buttermilk
powdered sugar


Cream the butter and sugar. Stir in egg yolks and whole egg. Blend.

In a separate bowl sift all dry ingredients except powdered sugar. Add to creamed mixture, alternating with buttermilk. Stir to mix all ingredients.

Cook by dropping spoonfuls of dough into 375 degree F deep fat. Fry a few at a time, to keep fat temperature constant. Turn to brown on all sides. Drain on paper towel. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
