Patter Fam Sauces

Serves 10
1 pkg. active dry yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup evaporated milk
7 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup shortening
1 quart vegetable oil for frying
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar

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.

Shake confectioners sugar on hot beignets. Serve warm.
