Beignets have been associated with Mardi Gras in France since the 16th century. It's French for "fritter" and a New Orleans specialty. In 1986, beignets became the Louisiana State Doughnut. Typically, beignets are fried pieces of dough and are sprinkled with sugar and or coated with different types of icings. In New Orleans, beignets are served with cafe au lait (strong dark roast coffee/chicory served with equal part hot milk).
