Turn dough onto a flour surface and roll out to ¼ inch thickness.
Cut into 2-½ inch squares and allow dough to dry on floured board, 10 to 12 minutes before frying. Fry in 1-inch very hot vegetable oil, turning once, cooking until golden brown, approximately 3 minutes. With slotted spoon, remove beignets and place on a paper towel to drain. Sprinkle liberally with powdered sugar. Dough will keep in refrigerator for several days. Makes about 2 to 2-½ dozen.
