Directions

  1. In a bowl stir together 1-1/4 cups of the flour, the yeast, and, if desired, nutmeg. In a saucepan heat milk, sugar, the 2 tablespoons shortening, and salt just until warm (120 degrees F to 130 degrees F) and the shortening is almost melted, stirring constantly.
  2. Add the heated mixture to the flour mixture. Add egg. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping sides of bowl. Beat for 3 minutes on high speed. Using a wooden spoon, stir in enough of the remaining flour to make a soft dough. Place dough in a greased bowl; turn once to grease the surface. Cover bowl and refrigerate the dough overnight or until well chilled.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Roll into an 18x12-inch rectangle. Cut into thirty-six 3x2-inch rectangles. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes (dough will not be doubled).
  4. In a large, deep saucepan or deep-fat fryer heat 2 inches of shortening or cooking oil to 375 degrees F. Fry 2 or 3 of the dough rectangles at a time about 1 minute or until golden, turning once. Drain on paper towels. Sift powdered sugar atop. Makes 36 beignets.
