Celebrate Mardi Gras with a New Orleans classic! Beignets are basically fritters, in that they’re made from dough that’s dropped into hot oil and deep-fried until golden and delicious. Before they’re ready to be enjoyed our Mardi Gras Beignets are sprinkled with confectioners’ sugar, just like they do in N’awlins!
What You’ll Need
- 1 (1-pound) loaf frozen bread dough, thawed
- 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar, divided
- 2 cups vegetable shortening
What to Do
- In a medium bowl, combine bread dough and 1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar. Using your hands, knead sugar into dough. Lightly flour a cutting board and with a floured rolling pin, roll out dough to an 8-inch by 16-inch rectangle. Cut into 2-inch squares.
- In a large deep skillet over medium heat, heat shortening until hot. Add dough squares a few at a time and cook in batches about 30 seconds per side, or until golden. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter.
- Sprinkle beignets with remaining confectioners’ sugar and serve warm.
- Beignets are traditionally served with chicory coffee or café au lait (a mix of half hot coffee and half scalded milk) but any way you serve them, they’re the perfect way to start or end the day.
