I have New Orleans in my heart and my belly!
I have such fond memories of going to the French Quarter and smelling the Cafe Du Monde coffee and Beignets …. sitting under the big fans and tent outside … trying to be good in anticipation for … sweet vanilla dough heaven and powdered sugared faces!
So I just had to try my best to re-create that somehow. I looked up a few recipes, including the one on the Cafe Du Monde box of Beignets. I decided I just didn’t want to fry it … it is Super Bowl Sunday and I have a game to watch … so I baked it! They are usually square and like fritters, mine are round like cookies and slightly puffed … but the flavor is all there!
Gotta Go ….
… I have Cafe Du Monde and GLUTEN FREE BEIGNETS in the house … need I say more?
GO SAINTS !!!!
