This morning, like almost every morning, Little Man asked for donuts for breakfast. And while usually I suggest a banana instead, today I decided to say yes. The local mom-and-pop donut shop went out of business this week, and I was so sad they didn't make it. They had the best beignets and kolaches, and the people who ran it were wonderful.
So as tribute to them, it was a special breakfast kind of day.
You need only 3 ingredients: fry oil, Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Original biscuits, and powdered sugar.
We started by heating some flavorless oil to 350 degrees. We used grape seed oil and a a candy thermometer.
Then we cut the biscuits in fours.
Fry them for a couple minutes on the first side, flip them, and just about a minute more on the other, till they are nice and golden. Dry them a bit on a paper towel.
Wait a couple minutes for them to cool, then shake them around in some powdered sugar.
The sugar will stick to the oil and turn them into yummy beignet-like donuts!
There were enough for 2 families of four, so you may want to use the half-can. But YUM! And so easy.
Hope you enjoy!
