Biscuit Beignets - so easy to make!


Biscuit Beignets are fried in oil until they are golden, puffy pillows and then dusted with a blanket of powdered sugar. They are so good with a cup of coffee.

Beignets are one of my favorite New Orleans foods and a trip to Cafe du Monde for beignets is a must everytime I visit New Orleans.

These Biscuit Beignets are perfect for when you want a shortcut. Refrigerated biscuits, vegetable oil, and powdered sugar are all you need. I also like to drizzle them with a little caramel sauce.
