  1. In bowl of stand mixer with dough hook, stir water, yeast and sugar; let stand 5 minutes. Add egg, flour, evaporated milk, butter and salt. Mix on low speed 2 minutes. Increase speed to medium; mix 2 minutes.
  2. Transfer dough to lightly floured work surface; gently knead 2 minutes or until dough is smooth, dusting dough with flour as needed (note: dough will be very sticky). Spray large bowl with nonstick cooking spray; transfer dough to prepared bowl. Cover with plastic wrap; let stand in warm place 2 hours or until doubled in size.
  3. Transfer dough to lightly floured work surface; punch down dough. Dust rolling pin with flour; roll dough to 12 x 16-inch rectangle. Using a ruler as a guide, cut dough into 2-inch squares.
  4. Attach candy thermometer to side of 4-quart saucepot. Fill pot with 2 inches of oil; heat oil to 375°. Carefully add 3 to 4 beignets to hot oil; cook 1 to 1-1/2 minutes or until golden brown, turning once halfway through cooking. With slotted spoon, transfer beignet to paper towel-lined cookie sheet to drain. Repeat process to cook remaining beignets, adding more oil to pot if necessary and reheating to 375°.
