1/2 cup salt 

2 eggs 

22 to 24 pounds all-purpose flour 

24 ounces shortening, plus more for frying

Serving suggestions: granulated sugar, confectioners' sugar or cinnamon sugar

Directions

  1. In the mixing bowl of a large stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, mix the water, yeast, sugar, salt and eggs. Add the flour and shortening, and mix for 10 minutes. Place the dough on a dough board, then cover and rest the dough for 40 minutes.
  2. Preheat a deep fryer to 360 degrees F.
