Peach Beignets and Seafood Quiche

Peach Beignets  

2 cups Café Du Monde beignet mix
1 cup peach puree
1 cup Paw Paw’s Peach Wheat Beer

In a bowl, combine two cups of beignet mix with 1 cup of Paw Paw’s Peach Wheat. You may have to add a little more or a little less beer to achieve the desirable beignet mix dough. Mix the ingredients with a spoon until the beignet mix is thoroughly mixed with the beer.
*The dough should be relatively soft, like drop biscuit dough. It should not be stiff like pie dough. Do not over mix the dough. You will have tough beignets if you over mix the dough.

Scoop the mix from the bowl onto a well-floured surface. You will need additional flour to roll the dough flat. Roll the beignet dough flat and cut into 2-inch squares using a pizza cutter. From around the edges, you will have scraps of dough left over.
*Do not try to remix these scraps and cut them into squares. If you do this, you will get tough beignets. Just fry these pieces just the way they are.

Your cooking oil should be at 370° Fahrenheit. You may use any vegetable oil you wish.
*Remember that the temperature of the oil will drop when you add the beignet dough to the oil. Do not add too many pieces to the oil or else the oil temperature will drop and your beignets will fry up flat. They will not puff up. The only other reason the dough does not puff up would be if you rolled the beignet dough too flat. Try rolling the dough a little thicker.

Serve covered with slice peaches and powdered sugar as desired.

Seafood Quiche

10 eggs
8oz of shrimp
1 cup milk
1 cup diced tomato
1 tsp salt
1 tsp white pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

Place pie crust into a 9” deep pie dish and prick crust all over with a fork. Brush with oil. Place crust onto a prepared baking sheet. Bake crust in preheated oven for 8 minutes.

Crack 10 fresh shell eggs into a mixing bowl and whisk while adding milk to reach a creamy consistency. Then add 8oz of shrimp, 8oz of crabmeat and desired seasoning for spice and heat. Then add 1 cup diced tomato (3/16” diced), 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp white pepper.

Pour filling into quiche pastry and bake until a knife inserted into the middle of the quiche comes out clean (about 40 minutes).

Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.
