We finally made the beignets from the Cafe Du Monde mix we bought in New Orleans, LA. And yes, they were just as amazing as they are at Cafe Du Monde.  You can purchase the beignet mix by clicking here.

Directions:

– In a larger bowl, mix 2 cups of the beignet mix and 7 fl. oz. water.  Stir with spoon until blended.

-to 1/8 inch thickness on a floured surface, using flour liberally on dough, cut into 2 and 1/4 inch squares.  (this makes about 2 dozen)

-In a deep fryer, fry each until puffy and light golden.  Drain well.

-While hot, sprinkle generously with powdered sugar.

Enjoy!
