Beignets with powdered sugar!

This was so easy to make, the part that took the longest was heating up the oil. Sure, I cheated a little, but they were still yummy!!

1 can of 10 refrigerated biscuits (I used Texas style)
vegetable oil
1/2 cup of powdered sugar

Put about 1/2 inch of oil in the bottom of a skillet. Or you can use a deep fryer if you have one.
Pat down the biscuits, I leave them whole, but my mom cuts them in half. Sometimes she even cuts out a hole in the middle to make them look more like donuts.

Once oil is heated, (I tested a little piece of biscuit to make sure it bubbled) put biscuits in oil. Watch very closely, it only takes about 20 seconds before it's time to turn them over. They brown very easily. I use two forks to turn them over.

Drain on paper towels and top with powdered sugar.

Easy and delicious. The only bad thing is that they get soft and mushy and don't reheat well.
