Fried Dough







Fried Dumpling Dough
 
So if you looked at my Chicken Dumpling Soup, then you saw how wonderful the dumplings turned out. So if you made too many, like I did....Then you can fry them in vegetable oil and sprinkle them with sugar and powdered sugar or cinnamon. Every kid will love them and devourer them.... My Niece Brianna ate them up!! So here goes:
 
Ingredients:
 
3 Cups of Flour
11 Ounces of Milk
1 1/2 Teaspoons of Baking Powder
1 Extra Cup of Flour for mixing
1 1/2 Teaspoons of salt
1/4 Cup of Vegetable Oil
1 Cup of White Sugar
1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
1/4 Cup Cinnamon
 
 
 
Directions:

In a mixer with dough attachment, add flour, milk, baking powder and salt. Mix until a firm dough ball. Add more flour if necessary. Let sit for 15 minutes or until all equipment is cleaned. On a floured surface, cut dough into 2" strips and use a floured rolling pin to flatten strips into 1/4" thick pieces of  dough. Cut strips into dough squares, just like picture above. Place dough into a floured baking sheet until ready to use. Then add Vegetable oil to frying pan and heat to med-high heat. Add dough strips and fry until golden brown, turning frequently. Pull finished cooked dough onto a strainer that you have situated on top of a cooking sheet. Sprinkle generously with white sugar, letting the excess sugar fall onto cookie sheet for easy clean-up.... Once everything is cooked place cooked dough on a serving dish and sprinkle 1/2 with Cinnamon and 1/2 with powdered sugar. Enjoy!!!
