      Title: Beignets #2
 Categories: Dessert
      Yield: 36 Servings
    3/4 c  Water
      2 ts Sugar
    1/2 c  Evaporated milk
      1 pk Yeast
  3 1/4 c  Flour
    1/3 c  Sugar
      1    Egg
      2 tb Shortening
      1 ts Salt
    1/2 ts Nutmeg
           Powdered sugar
  Mix all ingredients except oil and powdered sugar. Knead and let rise
  until doubled. Punch down. Roll into rectangle. Cut dough into into 2
  inch wide strips at a diagonal. Cut again diagonally to form
  diamonds.  Place on ungreased baking sheets, 2 in apart. Cover
  loosely with plastic wrap. Gather up scraps and let rest 15 minutes.
  Roll and cut as before. Let rise until doubled in bulk, about 45
  minutes. In a large saucepan, heat 3 inches of oil to 365 or until a
  1 in cube of bread browns in 60 seconds. Carefully slide beignets
  into hot oil 3-4 at a time. Do not crowd. Fry until puffy and golden
  brown on both sides, turning once with tongs. Should be about 2-3
  minutes per side. Remove with slotted spoon and drain on paper
  towels. Sift powdered sugar over hot beignets and serve hot. Makes 36.
