Hot Cross Beignets

I know, we just had beignets last week. But I get on these kicks, as you may have noticed.

The leftover cream cheese frosting in my fridge needed to be turned into something. There was just enough to pipe over a batch of beignets, studded with candied citron and currants and spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. Why not? (This is why I was hesitant to own a deep fryer. Opportunities keep presenting themselves.)

A good shake of powdered sugar and icing crosses to upgrade the usual buns.

  1. These are amazing! Love the creativity. I must try beignets. I probably said that last week, too! I do not have a deep fryer for exactly the reason you stated!

    Looks like Sally Lunn ‘crossed’ with the beignets. You are on a roll!

    Ah yes so very creative!

    And you’re loving the deep fryer? We got one last summer, used it once and it went to the basement. In fact, just a few days ago, JW said, “What’s this? Do we need this?” He didn’t even recognize it! Happy Easter, Pille!
