  • 3½ C. flour
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. ginger
  • ½ tsp. nutmeg

  1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients and the spices. Set aside. In a mixing bowl, blend the sugar and butter until smooth. Add egg and egg yolks, vanilla, milk, sour cream, and pumpkin. Blend well, then add dry ingredients gradually until a batter forms. Chill the dough for 1-2 hours or overnight.
  2. Roll 1" dough balls, adding a little flour to prevent stickiness if necessary. Heat 1-2" oil in a skillet or frying pan over medium heat. Place the dough balls in the pan, turning to brown on all sides. Remove with a slotted spoon. When cool enough to touch, roll in a mixture of cinnamon sugar (1/2 C. sugar, 2 tsp. cinnamon). Serve immediately.
