    1       pk           Active dry yeast
    1 1/2   c            Warm water -- 105 deg.
      1/2   c            Sugar
    1       t            Salt
    2                    Eggs
    1       c            Evaporated milk, undiluted
    7       c            All-purpose flour
      1/4   c            Shortening -- softened
                         Oil -- for frying
                         Powdered sugar
 
   In large bowl, sprinkle yeast over water; stir to
   dissolve.  Add sugar, salt, eggs and milk.  Blend with
   beater.  Add 4 cups of the flour, beat smooth.  Add
   shortening; beat in remaining flour.  cover with
   plastic wrap and chill overnight.  Roll out on floured
   board to 1/8 thickness. Cut into 2 1/2 squares. Deep
   fry at 360F 2-3 minutes until lightly browned on each
   side.  Drain on paper towels and sprinkle heavily with
   powdered sugar. Serve hot with cafe au lait. Note:
   this dough can be kept for up to a week in
   refrigerator and actually improves with age; just
   punch down when it rises.  Dough can also be frozen;
   simply thaw, cut and roll, or shape donuts before
   freezing.  Tastes like the original!
