Diamond Inn Kneecaps

2 packages (1/4 ounce each) dry yeast
1/4 cup warm (110 to 115 degrees) water
1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
2 cups milk
6 1/2 cups sifted flour
Vegetable oil for frying
Powdered sugar for garnish
Whipped cream for garnish

Stir yeast into warm water in large bowl; let stand until it bubbles. In another bowl, cream shortening, sugar and salt; add eggs and milk.Stir into yeast mixture. Stir in flour. Turn out onto floured surface and knead dough about 5 minutes or until smooth.

Place dough in greased bowl, turning dough over to grease top, and let rise in warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 1/2 hours. Punch dough down. On floured surface, roll dough out to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut into rounds with 2-inch, well-floured cookie cutter. Press scraps together and cut remaining dough into 2-inch rounds. Cover and let rise 30 minutes.

When ready to fry, heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees. With index and middle finger, press in center of each "cap." Drop kneecaps, indented side down, into hot oil. Fry until golden brown on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes total, turning once. Remove from oil, drain on paper toweling and let cool. When cool, dust with powdered sugar. Fill holes with whipped cream. Makes 3 dozen.

Notes: For tender cakes, have all ingredients at about 70 degrees so dough can be mixed quickly.

Keep dough just firm enough to be easily handled. Chill dough slightly to shape it before cutting so the board won't have to be so heavily floured.

Dos Bandidos Beef Fajita Nachos

Post  justmecookin on Wed Aug 20, 2008 8:52 am

Dos Bandidos Beef Fajita Nachos

1/2 pound skirt steak
1 bottle (12 ounces) citrus-based meat marinade
3/4 cup mashed refried beans (about)
5 tostada shells (see note)
3 ounces grated Monterey jack cheese
1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup pico de gallo
1/2 cup jalapenos, chopped and drained
1/2 cup guacamole

The night before you want to make this dish, combine steak with marinade and refrigerate overnight, turning regularly. To prepare: Remove meat from marinade and discard marinade. Grill to desired doneness, then cut into 20 cubes.

Thinly and evenly spread beans over tostada shells. Divide cheese over shells. Set tostada shells on a cookie sheet and set under broiler just until cheese melts, 30 to 60 seconds. Remove from heat then cut each tostada shell into four even wedges using a pizza cutter.

Set tostada pieces around the rim of a large serving platter, topping each piece with a cube of the meat. Be sure to set meat on tostada pieces with grill marks facing up. In the center of the platter set lettuce, sour cream, pico de gallo, jalapenos and guacamole. Makes about 4 appetizer servings.

Notes: Tostada shells should measure about 6 inches and be deep-fried until crisp. They can be purchased already fried at Mexican and specialty food stores. This dish can also be made with marinated chicken or a combination of the beef and chicken.
