Sfince di San Giuseppe

2 cups pre-sifted all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons dry yeast
3/4 cup warm milk
5 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup confectioner's sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Vegetable oil for frying

In a large mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warmed milk with
1 tablespoon sugar and let stand for 5 minutes. Add the flour,
remaining sugar and vanilla extract, then gently knead the dough
for about 10 minutes until smooth. Cover the bowl with a kitchen
towel and set aside to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.

Mix the confectioner's sugar and cinnamon and put in a shaker or
small sifter for dusting the doughnuts.

Form the dough into small balls, about 1 tablespoon per ball and
let them rise for 15 minutes.

Heat the vegetable oil to 375F.

Drop 4 to 5 sfinci at a time into the hot oil and evenly fry each
side until golden brown, then place them on paper towels to drain
away the excess oil. Allow the sfince to cool then liberally dust
them with the powdered sugar and serve with coffee.

Makes about 2 dozen sfinci.
