One can’t talk about sweet treats in New Orleans without mentioning beignets. I had no idea how easy and yummy this quick substitute could be until about a year ago. (Probably a good thing for my jeans…).

It’s so easy anyone can make it! Seriously!

You Will Need:

  • 1 large can of the cheapest little buttermilk biscuits (The cheap ones fluff up the best.)
  • Powdered sugar
  • Oil for frying (Your choice. We usually use vegetable or canola.)
  • Large frying pan
  • Tongs
  • knife
  • Sugar sifter

To Make the Biscut Beignets

Preheat oil in a frying pan. Pour just enough so that the biscuits will float without touching the bottom of the pan.

While the oil is heating, cut each biscuit in half.
