Prep:

30 Min

Ingredients

BEINETS (MAKES 2 1/2 DOZEN)

1/2 c
boiling water
2 Tbsp
crisco shortening
1/4 c
sugar
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 c
evaporated milk
1 pkg
dry yeast
1/4 c
warm water
1
egg beaten
3 3/4
flour
powdered sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pour boiling water over shortening, sugar, and salt. Add milk and let stand until warm.
2
Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water and add to milk mixture with the beaten egg.
3
Stir in 2 cups flour and beat well. Gradually add remaining flour to make a soft dough. Place in a greased bowl and grease top of dough. (I use canola oil to grease bowl and top of dough).
4
Cover with waxed paper and a tea towel. Chill until ready to use.
5
Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Do not let dough rise before frying.
6
Cut into squares and fry a few at a time in deep hot fat and brown on one side, turn and brown on the other side. (They get done really fast!)
7
Drain on absorbent paper and sprinkle well with powdered sugar. (Make sure grease isn't too hot or dough too thick).
