Patter Fam Sauces

Beignets (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.
