Twenty years later, he and his dashing husband are successful dentists in Phoenix, and I still get weak in the knees when offered any form of deep-fried dough.

3 tablespoons shortening or unsalted butter

¾ teaspoon kosher salt

About 6 cups vegetable oil for frying

Use a slotted spoon to transfer the beignets to a strainer set over a bowl or onto a plate lined with folded paper towels to drain.
