1 1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoon shortening
2 packets dry yeast
4 cup's flour
Oil for frying
Sugar mixture (recipe follows)
Heat together, but do not boil, milk, sugar, salt and shortening until shortening is melted. Cool to lukewarm. Add yeast and stir until dissolved. Stir in flour, 2 cups at a time, beating until smooth after each addition. Put in a greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth and let rise until double, about 30 minutes.
Dust hands with flour; pinch off pieces of dough about the size of a golf ball. Stretch each ball into a thin 6' to 8' circle. Have oil at 350 degrees. Drop stretched dough, one at a time, into hot oil. Fry until it rises to the surface; turn and fry other side until light brown. Drain on absorbent paper and sprinkle generously with sugar mixture.
SUGAR MIXTURE; Mix 1/2 cup sugar with 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
