New Orleans Beignets

1/2 cup water
4 Tbsp butter or margarine
2 tsp sugar
dash salt
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
oil
powdered sugar
1/2 tsp fresh orange zest (optional)

In saucepan over medium heat, combine water, butter, sugar and
salt. Bring to a boil, stirring, until butter melts. Add flour
all at once. Over low heat, cook and stir until mixture forms into
a ball. Remove from heat and vigorously beat in eggs, one at a
time, until mixture is smooth and shiny (similar to eclairs). Add
vanilla and zest (if using), mixing well.

Drop rounded teaspoonsful of dough into deep hot oil at 375 degrees
Fahrenheit. Correct frying temperature is very important. Fry
beignets a few at a time until golden on all sides (they may turn
themselves over in the oil). Remove with slotted spoon and drain
on paper toweling. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
