Beignets (French market Doughnuts)

Wow, I shouldn't have made these!!! They are torture! My oldest daughter Skye helped me make these. It was so much fun!!! We are taking them to our Easter potluck at church tomorrow, hope everyone else enjoys them as much as we do...if not we will bring them all home! We used our bread machine and cooked them in our "Cool Daddy" deep fryer, but you can cook them on the stove in about a quart of oil...

1 1/4 cup warm milk
1/8 cup shortening
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon yeast
2 eggs, beaten
4 cups flour
1 cup confection sugar for dusting

1. Arrange all ingredients into bread machine in order suggested my the manufacturer. Select dough cycle and remove once the dough has formed a nice ball. Wrap with saran wrap and refrigerate for 1/2 to 1 hour.

2. Working with a small baseball size amount of dough, roll out till about 1/8 inch thick. Cut into diamond shapes and gently slide into heated oil. Let fry for about 2 minutes or until golden brown, flip doughnut and let other side brown. Once done, remove from oil and let slightly cool. Place doughnut in a bad with the confection sugar and shake to coat evenly. Eat hot and enjoy or let cool and enjoy just as much!!!
