How to Make Pumpkin Beignets Disneyland Recipe

Combine pumpkin purée, sugar, cream, water, eggs, shortening, pumpkin extract, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Whisk to combine. Add flour and yeast, stirring by hand to combine.

Mix dough with the dough hook attachment until it forms a ball around the hook; the dough may be a little sticky.

With floured hands, remove dough from hook and roll into a ball. Place dough in a clean bowl. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Roll dough on a well-floured surface to 1/3-inch thickness. Cut into 25 squares. Cover with a clean dishtowel and set aside in a warm, draft-free area for 45 minutes.

Line a plate with paper towels; set aside.

Pour vegetable oil into a deep pot to a depth of 3 inches. Heat oil to 350°F.

Working in 2 or 3 batches, carefully drop dough into oil. Cook, turning frequently with a long-handled slotted spoon, until puffed and golden, about 3 minutes.

Remove beignets with a slotted spoon and transfer to the plate lined with paper towels. Lightly tent with foil to keep warm while remaining beignets cook.

Generously sprinkle powdered sugar on top of warm beignets. Be sure to serve this beignets Disneyland recipe WARM! Oh my yum!   These fall recipes from Disneyland are perfect for Halloween and fall!

Ingredients for Jack Skellington Cookies

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup butter, softened

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Ingredients for Jack Skellington Cookies Icing:

2 egg whites

3 cups confectioner’s sugar

1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Black food coloring paste

Jack Skellington Cookies Directions:

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl and whisk until combined. Set aside.

Combine butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add flour mixture in three parts. Once dough comes together, cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 400°F.

On a floured surface, roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Using a round cookie cutter or an overturned cup, cut dough into circles about 3 1/4 inches in diameter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool completely before icing.

Directions for icing:

  1. Place egg whites in bowl of an electric mixer; whisk until frothy. Add confectioners’ sugar a little at a time, until thick but still spreadable.
  2. Place 1/3 of icing in a separate bowl. Add black food coloring paste to reserved icing and stir until color is uniform.
  3. Decorate cooled cookies by covering with white icing and letting it dry (placing cookies in the refrigerator will speed up this process).
  4. Place black icing in a pastry bag or a plastic resealable bag and cut off a tiny bit of the corner to create a very small hole. Use black icing to draw eyes, nostrils, and stitched mouth on each cookie.
