Beignets are SOO delightful and fun to eat. No wonder they are popular in New Orleans. Make these for Fat Tuesday and it'll transport you to Louisiana. These are light and airy and made from a puff pasty dough which is the traditional dough used in New Orleans. Enjoy! Note that the totals within Nutritional information is not correct. It is taking into account the full measure of oil which the beignets are fried in. It also takes the 2 cups of Creme Anglaise (Vanilla Sauce) into account. Depending on how much you like Vanilla Sauce, you may not use all of the measure.
