One of our favorite holiday flavors has to be gingerbread! Whether it’s in cookie form, or cake, or gelato, or even a life-size gingerbread display, it’s an obvious and beloved flavor of the season.
And as much as we love making cute little gingerbread people-shaped cookies, it’s always fun to try something new during your holiday baking session. So this year we’re going to make these Gingerbread Beignets.
The beignets are dusted with cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar, but the Eggnog Crème Anglaise is a must as a dipping sauce!
This recipe hails from Cafe Orleans at Disneyland, where Gingerbread Beignets were available during the 2014 holiday season.
The recipe calls for chilling the dough at least 4 hours or overnight, so plan your baking day accordingly!
