4. Oven-Baked Puff Pastry Apple Beignets
Beignets come in a lot of versions. With batter and then fried in oil, with puff pastry and fried in oil, but this version has a healthier baked spin. When you oven bake puff pastry it gets really crisp. When you fry them in oil the pastry will set out even more but will be more soft. Just choose what you like best. These Oven-Baked Puff Pastry Apple Beignets by Mireille Aikman are fantastic!
