Follow directions exactly on back. You will use a TON of flour, so don’t be too weirded out if the mixture is less than doughy.
Once you submit to knowing that there is going to be a mess, the better off. Granted I’m sure most people actually have a rolling pin (umm, we used an old wine bottle), but there will still be a big flour mess. Don’t be stingy on the flour. You will need this A. so it doesn’t stick to your hands, and B. Stick to whatever you’re rolling the dough out onto.
Throw them in the oil. I let Bennett do this, because I probably would have killed myself.
Throw some powdered sugar on those bad boys and eat them!! Look at those beauties! They don’t look exactly like the box, but they are still delicious.
So get your booties to New Orleans, try the real thing, and then grab a box to take home and try to make them yourself!
