Add shortening; beat in remaining flour.


Cover and chill several hours.


Deep fry at 360 degrees 2 to 3 mintues or until lightly browned on each side. (If beignets don't rise to the top immediately when you drop them into the oil, the oil isn't hot enough.)


Drain on paper towels.


Sprinkle heavily with confectioners' sugar.


Serve hot.

Notes

So you just drop the entire batch of dough into the fat? Boy that's a big donut, New Orleans or not. Do you have any suggestions about how big the beignet should be, do you roll the dough after cooling, what kind of cutter do you use if any etc. Loved the recipe but would like whatever information you have to actually use it. lucas hess

I love Beignets! Thanks for posting.
