In Disney’s “The Princess and the Frog” Tiana makes a beignet which is a fried pastry. According to The Walt Disney Family Museum beignets were brought to New Orleans by French settlers in the 18th century.
Tiana’s beignets are made from a yeasted dough that is fried in hot oil. The dough is rolled out cut into squares and then fried until it is golden brown and puffy. Once fried the beignets are dusted with powdered sugar.
Beignets are usually served for breakfast or as a dessert and they are a popular snack at the famous Café du Monde in New Orleans. If you’re ever in New Orleans be sure to try one (or three!) of these delicious pastries.
