DIRECTIONS

  • Dissolve the yeast in the warm water and set aside.
  • Sift the flour and set aside.
  • Pour the boiling water over the shortening and stir until the shortening is melted.
  • Preheat deep fryer to 360 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a large bowl, combine 2 cups of the sifted flour with the sugar and salt, melted shortening, evaporated milk, egg, and yeast mixture.
  • Add enough additional flour to form a shaggy dough. The amount of flour is a guesstimate; humidity may cause you to need a touch more or less.
  • Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and roll thin - somewhere between 1/4-inch and 1/8-inch thick.
  • Using a pizza wheel, cut the dough into 2-inch squares.
  • Drop into hot fryer and brown on one side until golden; flip and brown on the other side.
  • Remove and drain on paper towels.
  • Sprinkle with sifted powdered sugar.
  • Serve immediately with a great cup of chicory joe.
