3 teaspoons3 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 teaspoon1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
1 cup240 ml half-and-half
2 teaspoons2 teaspoons Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract
2 eggs
3 cups380 g all-purpose flour
1/3 cup65 g sugar
1/2 teaspoon1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom  

In a small bowl, combine warm water, yeast and 1 teaspoon1 teaspoon of sugar; set aside to activate yeast. In a medium bowl, add butter, half-and-half and vanilla extract; stir and set aside. In a small bowl whisk eggs; set aside.

In a bowl of a free standing electric mixer, add flour, sugar, salt and cardamom. Place bowl on mixer stand which has been fitted with a dough hook. Turn mixer on low speed and combine dry ingredients.

Turn mixer to medium speed then add activated yeast mixture. Add half-and-half mixture, then add the whisked eggs. Mix until well combined, scraping the sides of the bowl when necessary. Dough will be slightly sticky.  

Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead, about 2-3 minutes; adding additional flour only when needed.

Lightly coat a large bowl with cooking spray and place dough into the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and keep warm until dough has doubled in size, about 2 hours. After dough has risen, place on a lightly floured surface and gently knead. Roll dough into a rectangle, about 1/4-inch0.6-centimeter thick. With a pizza cutter, cut dough into small rectangles, about 13x1/2 inch1 cm pieces.

Heat oil to 375 degrees F190 degrees C; carefully place dough in hot oil and fry until golden brown, about 45-60 seconds. Turn beignets so both sides are golden brown. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels; dust with Vanilla Powdered Sugar while bites are still warm. Dip Vanilla Beignet Bites in Nielsen-Massey’s signature Vanilla-Lemon Raspberry Jam.
