The card shows a recipe for beignet, a pastry made from deep-fried dough that is liberally sprinkled with powdered sugar. When I think of beignets, I think of New Orleans and Café du Monde, a coffee shop on Decatur Street in the French Quarter that I've read about in novels. Hopefully I'll get a chance one day to visit the city and drink cafe au lait and eat beignets there! For now, I'm checking out the Café du Monde website.
