Ingredients

1 package dry yeast

1/2 cup warm water

1/2 cup evaporated milk

1 egg beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 tablespoons melted butter

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon salt

3 cups all-purpose flour

3 to 4 cups peanuts oil for deep frying

Confectioners sugar, for garnish

Cinnamon sugar, for garnish

Directions

  1. In a bowl of a kitchen aid mixer dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk and next 5 ingredients. Then beat in flour, 1 cup at a time, on medium-high speed for 1 minute. Dough will be sticky. Work 1/4 of the dough at a time. Place on a well-floured board and roll dough to about 1/8 inch thick. Cut dough into 2 inch squares (irregular shapes are OK). Preheat oil to 370 degrees. Fry squares in oil, just a few at a time. When they rise to the surface, flip and cook until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Dust with powdered sugar, or cinnamon sugar. Serve warm.
