1 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup evaporated milk
7 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup shortening
1 quart vegetable oil for frying
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
Roll out dough 1/8 inch thick. Cut into 2 1/2 inch squares or triangles (or really whatever favorite shape you might want to try). Fry in 360 degree F (180 degrees C) hot oil.
Tip: If beignets do not pop up when you place them in the oil, it is not hot enough.
Once golden brown, remove from the oil and place on paper towels to remove excess grease.
Shake confectioners sugar on the hot beignets. Be sure to serve while still warm.
