  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add sugar, salt, eggs, evaporated milk, and blend well. Mix in 4 cups of the flour and beat until smooth. Add the shortening, and then the remaining 3 cups of flour. Cover and chill for up to 24 hours.
  • Roll out dough 1/8 inch thick. Cut into 2 1/2 inch squares. Fry in 360 degree F (180 degrees C) hot oil. If beignets do not pop up, oil is not hot enough. Drain onto paper towels.

    I'd heard of these before but never tried them so when I saw the recipe knew I wanted to give it a try. The dough is so nice and easy to work with and the end result light and not to sweet; just the right amount to suit me. I was thrilled with the way they puffed up while frying. The only changes I made was to cut the recipe in half (it still made a batch large enough for me and DH with left over to share with our neighbors) and added 1 teaspoon of vanillar to the dough. Can't wait to make these again for our family when they visit. Made for Spring PAC 2012
