The beignets remind me of the "Fritella", a delicious dessert/snack my Italian grandmother would make usually after she finished her homemade pasta. She would take the extra dough (which was already rolled out flat, like lasagna) cut it in strips about 2-3" wide and fry it, then cover it with powdered sugar. These were then very crispy and curly, with giant air "bubbles". Mmmmmm.....

I know different ethnic groups have similar desserts....
