You can’t buy them in DC, but hell, you can make em. Margaret brought home a box of Cafe du Monde beignet mix from her last trip to New Orleans. You just mix 2 cups of the mix with 7 oz of cold water, and then you work it into a dough. You roll the dough out into a thin tube and cut into chunks. Deep fry the little guys in 370 degree vegetable oil for about 60 seconds per batch (3-4 at a time). Sprinkle immediately with powdered sugar and eat. Thank you Janie for modeling them so kindly.
