Instructions
  1. In a bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda and sugar.
  2. Make a hole in the middle and crack 3 eggs into it and mix.
  3. Add the butter, lemon juice and orange blossom water. Incorporate into the flour mix and knead.
  4. For two balls of dough and let rest in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight (preferably).
  5. Stretch the dough with a rolling pan (or an empty bottle).
  6. With a knife, or pizza wheel, make 20 diamonds.
  7. For a more traditional shape, make 1 1/2 long slit in the center of the diamond and take one of the diamond's corners through the slit.
  8. Heat the oil in a deep pan. Temperature should reach 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  9. Dip beignets in the oil for a few seconds on each side (just enough time to get them to a blond, even color).
  10. Let them dry on a paper towel and for a fun effect, sprinkle confectioner's sugar on them. Enjoy!
