This recipe makes a large batch, but the dough can stay refrigerated for a week. Much tastier than Cafe Du Monde's box mix, and easy to prepare. Reg ThibodeauThe recipe is from a friend named Bernice:Beignet11/2 cup warm water1pkg yeast1/2 cup sugar7 cup flour1 tsp salt1 cup evaporated milk2 eggs1/4 cup softened butterDissolve yeast in warm waterAdd sugar,salt,eggs,milk and blend wellMix in 4 cups flour, beat til smoothAdd butter, then remaining 3 cup flourCover and chill overnight in fridgeRoll out dough 1/8 inch thick on lightly floured counterCut into 3 inch squaresFry in hot oil (350-375)Drain on paper towels, sprinkle with powdered sugar.This makes quite a large batch, but I fried up about 1/4 ofdough at a time and held the rest in the fridgeEnjoy!! eat some for me!

WOW! Being a long-time assistant to numerous Canines, as a Human Personal Assistant, I have NEVER seen the intensity of a gaze/stare than comes from a dog intent on tasting what People are eating! My Sadie has that same look in her Baby Browns when she sees I am eating ANYTHING tastier than beach sand! And I have NO resistance, even though I keep a list of NEVER FOODS FOR DOGS right there in my kitchen! Sadie doesn't get anything on the list, but she is managing to get (at least a taste) of items not on the list!BTW, Sadie is five-years-old, and her Vet says there's not an ounce of fat on her 65-pound frame!
You mean you LIKE that chicory coffee?!?!
It may be an acquired taste, but coffee with a little chicory added is delicious. _Especially with beignets :-)
Thanks for the recipe Reg!Murphy - she's got that look down.Peripatetic Engineer - I haven't tried it yet, but I know Partner enjoys
Looks like my dog when she smells the sausage on my plate. I'm such a sucker for the pitiful look...
