  • 2 tbsp vegetable shortening

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • vegetable oil for frying

Ingredients Maple Glaze:

  • 3 tbsps butter

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Instructions Pumpkin Beignets:

  1. In a small bowl, sprinkle the yeast in the warm water. Stir slightly and let sit for 5 minutes.

  4. Cover the bowl with a clean towel and let rest for 30 minutes.

  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to a 1/4-inch thickness. Cut the dough into 2-inch squares.

  7. In a deep heavy pot, heat 3 inches of vegetable oil to 350F.

  8. Carefully fry each beignet for 2 to 3 minutes. Once the beignet is golden on one side, flip it over and fry on the other side.
