Beignets

A beignet is a is a rectangular, hole-less donut with a bit of crunch to its crust and creamy insides. It is served piping hot from the fry kettle, dusted with so much confectioner’s sugar that it is nearly impossible to eat without clouds of the white powder covering fingers, hands, face, and clothes. The usual companion is cafe au lait, a smooth half-and-half mix of milk and chicory coffee. The time-honored place to eat beignets is in the old French Market at Cafe du Monde, a brash, al fresco commissary open 24/7/365.
