A few months ago my friend Amy in Louisiana sent me a package of local, regional foods, including beignet mix. SP wanted to do something fun on Christmas morning so he whipped up a batch of beignets using the mix.

We made these together after breakfast. SP mixed the dough and then I was in charge of cutting the dough and dropping the pieces into the oil while he manned the oil and my mother-in-law made sure each beignet had copious amounts of powdered sugar on it.

The funny thing is the box of mix says to refrigerate after opening. Hmm. I wonder why. I don't want it to go bad so I have a feeling we'll be making beignets again soon. It was certainly easy and the results were delicious.
Pin It!
