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 a puff pastry it gets really crispy. When you fry them in oil the pastry will set out even more but will be softer. Just choose what you like best.
