The French sure know how to make good food. Beignets, which are fried French doughnuts, are like American doughnuts but are much more tender and soft, and the flavor is not quite as sugary as the American stuff. This makes beignets easily savorable alone for those who don't like too much sugar and with mountains of powdered sugar for those with a sweet tooth.
