  • Step 1

    In a large bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt and sugar until smooth. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt. Combine until a dough forms.

  • Step 2

    Dust a work surface with additional flour, then flip the dough out onto the prepared surface and knead it until it becomes smooth and elastic, adding more flour as necessary.

  • Step 3

    Shape the dough into a 4 x 5-inch rectangle that is about 1-inch thick, then cut into 4 equal squares. Dust each square with flour until no longer sticky.

  • Step 4

    Spray the Cook & Crisp basket with nonstick cooking spray, then place the basket in the pot. Place the dough squares in the basket. Spray the dough all over with cooking spray.

  • Step 5

    Close the lid and move the slider to STEAMCRISP. Select STEAM & CRISP, set temperature to 325°F, and set time to 10 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin cooking (PrE will display for approx. 5 minutes as the unit steams, then the timer will start counting down).

  • Step 6

    When cooking is complete, the beignets should be lightly golden brown and puffed.

  • Step 7

    Remove basket from pot. Transfer the beignets to a serving plate and immediately dust with powdered sugar. Serve with raspberry jam for dipping.
