If you've never had a beignet in New Orleans, they are what's not left on the plate. Essentially a square donut covered with a generous dusting of powdered sugar, they are a favorite of all New Orleanians -- everybody from Louisiana even. Oh, heck, let's make that the world.
Here, my grandson Sullivan, the pile of beignets vanished, gets in every last lick of the powdered sugar. This is at the Cafe Du Monde at the Lakeside Mall.
