Why I Love This Recipe

These are what are served at fairs. They are relatively easy to make. You could make them easier by buying frozen bread dough but they aren't the same.

Crispy cinnamon-sugar fried bread confections!


Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons white sugar
3/8 cup shortening
2 tablespoons active dry yeast
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 quart oil for frying
3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
6 tablespoons white sugar


Directions

In small saucepan over medium heat, combine milk, salt, 2 tablespoons sugar and shortening. Heat until shortening melts and sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and let cool to lukewarm, 110 degrees F (43 degrees C). Sprinkle in yeast and let sit until foamy.


Transfer mixture to large bowl, and stir in flour to make a dough. Knead until smooth, cover and let rise 30 minutes.


In a large heavy skillet or deep fryer, heat 1 inch of oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).


Roll out 1 to 2 inch balls of dough into thin sheets. Fry sheets 1 to 2 minutes on a side, until puffed and golden. Drain on paper towels.


Combine cinnamon and 6 tablespoons sugar.


Sprinkle over warm pastries.


Serve.
