Soft, pillowy beignets are a Big Easy classic. Made with a lightly sweetened dough, this recipe puffs up beautifully into doughnut-like pockets and is perfected with lots of powdered sugar. Serve your freshly fried beignets with a café au lait for the most authentic New Orleans flavor. Classic beignets are a crowd-favorite at spring luncheons, garden parties, and baby showers – but we wouldn't blame you if you wanted this Southern delicacy on a weekly basis.
