Combine yeast, water, and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer, let sit 5 minutes until frothy, add salt, egg, and evaporated milk.  Mix on low speed, add half the flour, then the shortening, and in increments the remaining flour. Turn on to board and knead to finish to a non sticky dough, add flour if you need it.  Proof covered until doubled, remove punch down, and roll into a ½ inch thick rectangle, cut into strips and then cut on the diagonal to make diamond shapes, place on floured baking sheet to let rise.  Prepare pan or fryer for frying.
