From: Wendy Lockman Proof the yeast. Scald
the milk; stir in the sugar, shortening, and salt. Cook the mixture
to the 105 to 115 degree range. Add milk mixture, egg, and 2 cups
flour to the yeast mixture, mixing well. Gradually stir in enough
remaining flour to make a soft dough. Turn the dough out onto a
floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic (8 to 10
minutes). Place in a well-greased bowl, turning to grease the top.
Cover and let rise about 1 hour, or until doubled. Punch dough down;
turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll dough into a 12" x 10"
rectangle; cut into 2" squares. Place on a floured surface; cover and
let rise in a warm place 30 minutes or until doubled in bulk.
Heat 3" to 4" of oil to 375 degrees; drop in 3 to 4 beignets at a
time. Cook 1 minute on each side or until golden. Drain on paper
towels, and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
