  • 1 (11 ounce) can refrigerated biscuits, I use flaky ones
  • 2 cups oil
  • 14 cup powdered sugar


  1. Heat oil in skillet over medium high heat.
  2. Remove biscuits from can and cut each in half and a 1 inch slit in the center to make a typical beignet shape.
  3. When oil is hot fry about 6 beignets at a time, turning often so they do not burn but turn a golden brown.
  4. Remove from oil and drain beignets on a paper towel.
  5. Place on serving plate and dust with powdered sugar.
