Perfect Gluten-Free Beignets. Just like the ones served at Walt Disney World. Perfect for Mardi Gras.
Note: This beignet recipe is very specific. Replacing any of the ingredients--including the flour-- can alter the results.
recipe adapted from Port Orleans at Walt Disney World Resort
Dust counter with white rice flour. Turn dough out onto the counter. Knead a few times. Pat dough into a disk. Cut in half. Dust a 12x18 piece of parchment paper with white rice flour. Place the dough in the center of the parchment paper. Dust the top of the dough with white rice flour. Cover the dough with a second piece of parchment paper. Roll dough out into 1/4 inch thickness. Do not roll the dough thinner than this or it won’t puff. Repeat with the second piece of dough.
Allow dough to rise until puffy, about one hour. (Keep it covered between the parchment paper as it rises.)
