    Homemade Wannabe Donuts and Yeast Rolls

    4 Tablespoons Shortening (melted)
    6 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
    2 Cups warm water
    2 Packages Dry Yeast (not fast rising)
    Mix all of the above until yeast is dissolved and let rest for 5 minutes.
    Add the following and mix until well blended:
    5 cups All Purpose Flour
    2 eggs-beaten
    2 teaspoons salt
    Let rise until doubled in size-about 1 1/2 hours.
    Flatten out on a floured cutting board until about 1" thick.
    You could use a muffin pan but I just spooned the dough onto an oiled cookie sheet.
    Bake at 450 for about 12-14 minutes or until brown. Brush with butter or dip in seasoned liquid from BBQ shrimp.

    I had a small amount of dough left over and decided to see if I could do something tasty and unhealthy with it. So of course I rolled into small strips and FRIED it in oil at about 350 F flipping them once brown on one side. Drain on paper towels and let cool slightly.

    Donut Glaze
    1 cup of powdered sugar
    1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
    2 Tablespoons Milk
    Whisk the ingredients together for a few seconds to make the glaze.
    Dip one side of the pastry in glaze and place on wire rack to cool and to solidify. Repeat with the other side.
