Pumpkin Beignets – New Orleans Square at Disneyland Park Makes 25 beignets
½ cup plus 2 tablespoons pumpkin purée
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon heavy cream
¼ cup warm water
3 large eggs
2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
2 teaspoons pumpkin extract (optional)
¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
4 cups all-purpose flour
½ tablespoon dry instant yeast
Vegetable oil, for frying
Powdered sugar, for coating
Combine pumpkin purée, sugar, cream, water, eggs, shortening, pumpkin extract, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Whisk to combine. Add flour and yeast, stirring by hand to combine.
Mix dough with the dough hook attachment until it forms a ball around the hook; the dough may be a little sticky.
With floured hands, remove dough from hook and roll into a ball. Place dough in a clean bowl. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
Roll dough on a well-floured surface to 1/3-inch thickness. Cut into 25 squares. Cover with a clean dishtowel and set aside in a warm, draft-free area for 45 minutes.
Line a plate with paper towels; set aside.
Pour vegetable oil into a deep pot to a depth of 3 inches. Heat oil to 350°F.
Working in 2 or 3 batches, carefully drop dough into oil. Cook, turning frequently with a long-handled slotted spoon, until puffed and golden, about 3 minutes.
Remove beignets with a slotted spoon and transfer to the plate lined with paper towels. Lightly tent with foil to keep warm while remaining beignets cook.
Generously sprinkle powdered sugar on top of warm beignets; serve warm
Halloween in NYC with Tallulah and Google Photos….
Super excited about an event coming up this week here in NYC!
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and on October 29th Times Square will be transformed into a Pumpkin Patch by Google Photos! (for real)
“Pumpkins are one of the most shared fall photos, and there will be tons for picking. Come celebrate the season with live carvings, cider & donuts from the Google Photos “Pay With A Photo” food truck and bluegrass from The Defibulators.
Take the perfect fall pic in our photo booth — you might see your photo on a billboard in Times Square, and you’ll have the chance to get it etched into a pumpkin by a special carving machine.”
I used Google Photos app to find these photos I took of my favorite little Halloween feline back in 2011.
Tallulah is Halloween colored and I always refer to Halloween as Lulahween :).
I used the app to look through my many “Cats” photos to find these gems (hah).
Love her so much.
Hope to see you in the Times Square Pumpkin Patch on October 29th in Times Square!!! :)
