Beignets & Rolls

Today after making rolls I decided to give Beignets a try using the leftover Challah dough that was refrigerated. They were not what I expected but since I have never had one anywhere before I'm not sure how they are supposed to taste lol. They were easy enough to make especially with the dough already made up in the fridge.

All you do is roll out the dough to about 1/8th of an inch and cut into 2 inch squares using a pizza cutter. Then you let rest for 40 minutes. Once rested heat up some vegetable oil and cook them about 3 at a time until they are browned on each side. They do puff up and are very airy inside. We had them with honey instead of traditional powdered sugar. They were not that sweet but I'm sure had we covered them in the powdered sugar they would have been. Darin said they tasted pretty similar to sopapillas and little man really seemed to enjoy them so that's what matters right.

Also while Challah makes amazing bread it however did not make very good rolls, they were really dense and didn't taste like the bread loaf did. They look pretty but weren't near as good as the first batch of rolls using the basic boule dough.
