Preheat your oven at 180 degrees C and prepare your biggest sheet pan by covering it with baking paper and sprinkling a little water and coconut oil on top of it.

Take one of the puff pastry sheets and add coat it with 3 – 4 Tbsp from the liquid mixture. Layer with the second puff pastry sheet and coat it with the same mixture and add 2 handfuls of sour cherries on top. You can be as messy as you like this is the way you get the best taste. Roll the pastry sheets lightly and add the roll to the sheet pan. Repeat this step until you run out of puff pastry sheets.

After you put all of your pastry rolls in the pan coat them with a little bit of coconut oil and bake for 30 min or until it gets crispy.

Tiana’s beignets

Ingredients:

  • 1 3/4 tsp active yeast
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups flour

Instructions:

In a bowl add the yeast, sugar and warm water, let it set for a couple of minutes until you can notice small bubbles, which indicates that the yeast has been activated.

Add the egg and the lemon zest and mix with a fork until combined. Since it needs quite a lot of flour, transfer the mixture in a bigger bowl, add the butter, vanilla sugar and gradually add the flour until you make a big round dough that doesn’t stick to your fingers. If you need more flour feel free to add some.

Place the smooth dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover it with plastic wrap. You should put the bowl in warmer place so the dough can rise, this takes about 60 minutes.

Lightly cover the work surface with flour and roll out the dough so it is about 1 cm thick. Cut it into what ever shapes you like (we did rectangles since Princess Tiana did it that way) and let them sit for 30 more minutes.

In a frying pan put some vegetable oil and bring to 180 degrees C. When the oil gets heated add the dough rectangles 1 by 1 and fry them. You don’t want to do them all at once.

Serve with a little bit of honey and powdered sugar and enjoy!
