(This recipe makes 24 beignets)
- 1/2 tsp of dry yeast
- 1/4 cup of warm water (105 degrees)
- 4 cups of all purpose flour
- 1 cup of canned pumpkin puree
- 1/4 cup of sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup of heavy cream
- 1/4 cup of hot water
- 2 tbsp of vegetable shortening
- 1/2 tsp of salt
- Vegetable oil for frying
- 3 tbsp of butter
- 1/4 cup of maple syrup
- 1 cup of powdered sugar
- Sprinkle yeast over warm water in a small bowl, stirring to dissolve. Let stand for 5 minutes.
- Combine flour, pumpkin puree, sugar, heavy cream, hot water, egg, shortening and salt in a large bowl, then stir in the yeast mixture.
- Mix dough just until combined and smooth. Then let it rest in a bowl covered with a clean kitchen towel for 30 minutes.
- Transfer the dough to a well floured surface. Pat to about 1/4 inch thickness and cut into 2 inch squares. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let it rise in a warm, draft free area for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
- Heat 3 inch of vegetable oil to 350F in a deep heavy pot over medium heat. Fry the beignets until golden brown for about 2-3 minutes, turning as soon as they brown on one side.
- Remove with tongs or a slotted spoon and place on paper towels to drain.
- Combine the butter and maple syrup in a medium microwave safe bowl. Then microwave it until the butter melts.
- Whisk in powdered sugar until smooth.
- Drizzle warm beignets with maple glaze and serve immediately.
