Beignets are a classic New Orleans Treat, they are similar to a doughnut but are square and without a hole.
Some beignets are tossed with powered sugar but I love to serve them in a typical Café du Monde fashion with powdered sugar pilled on top!
The only thing missing is a cup of Cafe du Monde chicory coffee!
These New Orleans style Beignets are a must for your Mardi Gras party since no one throws a bigger party and celebration than New Orleans during Mardi Gras that always ends at the Cafe de Monde with beignets!
