New Orleans Style Beignets  

½ cup butter
1 cup water
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
4 eggs
Oil for deep frying
3 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar


In a medium saucepan, melt the butter in the water. Add salt and flour, and stir until a sticky batter is formed. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until the batter is smooth.

Heat the oil to 375F. Form the dough into a ball and generously add flour. Roll the the dough out into about 1/8" and cut into squares. [I use a pizza cutter.] Add them to the grease and flip them every couple minutes. They are done when they are light, golden brown on each side. Drain them for a few minutes on a clean kitchen towel and serve warm, dusted with the confectioners’ sugar.

I have never eaten a Beignet and would really like to eat one before trying to make it at home.
