      Why do u need 7 cups of flour if you only use 4 cups in the recipe?

    Can we have a recipe for those Mickey shaped pralines?! I love pralines! The donuts look great too… usually make homemade ones for Channukah, this year we did Malasadas.

    I have lived in Florida for over 22 years and hardly visit Disney, I do however visit the actual French Quarters in New Orleans and order Beignets–so good. I will have to try your version of Disney’s. Very excited to see how they turn out. Saving for later.

  • I love beignets and my kids love all things Mickey Mouse! These are just perfect for everyone – great recipe!
