How To Make The Best Fried Dough

The best fried dough starts with a recipe that includes flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and shortening. The only liquid ingredient, milk, should be whole milk when possible for the rich flavor. After you mix the dry ingredients together, cut in the cold shortening.

Add milk until the dough is soft, then knead it on a floured surface for 2 to 3 minutes. Cut it in strips and roll them to about a half-inch thickness. For the best fried dough, you need an oil temperature setting of medium-high on your fryer, or oil close to 350 degrees. Cook it for 3 to 4 minutes, flipping it over for even browning on each side.
