1, 2, 3. Mix 2 cups of the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, salt and yeast in large bowl. Add milk, shortening and eggs. (you can make like me, mix the yeast with some warm milk and keep it for few minutes to make sure that the yeast is working, then add the yeast to the flour).

4. Beat on low speed 1 minute, scraping bowl frequently. Beat on medium speed 1 minute, scraping bowl frequently.

7, 8. Cover and let rise in warm place 50 to 60 minutes or until double. (Dough is ready if indentations remain when touched).

9, 10.Turn dough onto generously floured surface; roll around lightly to coat with flour. Flatten dough with hands or rolling pin to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with floured doughnut cutter. Push together scraps and gently knead 2 or 3 times.  Flatten dough to 1/2 inch thickness; cut with floured 3 inch doughnut cutter. Cover doughnuts and let rise 30 to 40 minutes or until double. I made two shapes without holes and with holes.

11, 12. To make the doughnuts with jelly, add jelly to the dough and cover with another dough same size.
