You literally need these 3 ingredients to make the recipe. I used Pillsbury’s French Loaf for my dough, it would so easy to use.

How To Make Fake-Out Mickey Beignets

Place oil in a small-medium size saucepan filling 1/2 full. Heat oil to 350 degrees F. using a candy/kitchen thermometer.

Unroll French loaf into rectangle onto a floured countertop or floured parchment paper. Dip Mickey cookie cutter in flour and cut Mickey shapes out of loaf. You’ll get 8-10 using a 3 inch cutter. Place cut out pieces of dough onto a floured parchment lined plate. When oil is hot, carefully place Mickey dough, one at a time into oil. Let cook for about 60 seconds on the first side, or until golden brown. Flip using a slotted spoon and cook second side for 30-60 seconds until golden brown. Doesn’t take long, so watch carefully. When both sides are golden brown, use slotted spoon to transfer to a paper towel lined plate. Sprinkle powdered sugar over both sides of hot “beignet.” Continue cooking each Mickey “beignet” until done.

Place all beignets into a lunch sack, add 1/4 cup more powdered sugar, roll the top of the bag down a few times and gently shake to coat all areas of beignets. Place onto a serving plate and serve warm. Dip into a bowl of warm honey for an extra treat!

What You’ll Need

To make these “beignets,” you’ll need a kitchen or candy thermometer to get your oil to 350 degrees F. If you’ve made my Churro Toffee, use the same thermometer. Check the kitchen section of Target, Walmart or you can order on Amazon too.

You’ll also need a Mickey Mouse shaped cookie cutter. I used a 3 inch size that worked great. Found mine on Amazon. Search Mickey Mouse Cookie Cutters and lots come up.

Unroll your dough into a rectangle.

It unrolls just like this. Dip your Mickey cookie cutter into flour for each cut. Makes it much easier to remove dough.

Before you start frying your dough pieces, make sure your powdered sugar is ready to go. The dough cooks fast.

Since these are not like regular beignets they have a completely different texture. Kind of sopapilla-like. I love them dipped in warm honey. Give them a try!

    I have not made this item yet but I do have a question regarding it–can you bake these rather than frying them? We don’t really like to fry food are more into making it–so is there a recipe to make these but to bake not fry–and if so what temp. and how long?

    1. Hi Norma, I haven’t baked them so I’m not sure how they’d keep the Mickey Shape, that’s the only thing I worry about. I would try baking them at 350 degrees and check them after 10 minutes of baking. I’m guessing they’d be baked in 10-12 minutes max since they are cut out thin. Let me know if you end up trying them baked!
