In a small bowl, combine the warm water, sugar and yeast and stir. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a standalone mixer, combine the eggs, evaporated milk and salt and beat until combined.
With the mixer on low, add in the yeast mixture to the egg mixture.
Then add in 3 cups of the bread flour and mix on low.
Add the shortening in and continue to mix before adding the remaining 3 1/2 cups bread flour. DON’T over mix!
Knead the dough until smooth (it shouldn’t be stiff). Then place back in the bowl and cover with plastic wrap.
Set the bowl in a warm area and let it rise for 2 hours.
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/4″ thick. Then slice into 2″ squares with a pizza cutter.
Heat vegetable oil in a Dutch oven until the temperature reaches 350 degrees. Or you can be like me and just wait until it’s pretty hot ; )
Then place a few dough squares in the hot oil and watch the magic happen! Turn them so they don’t burn on one side.
When you remove them, dust with a light layer of powdered sugar, until all of them are done, then pile powdered sugar on top! And don’t be shy!!
