These Biscuit Beignets with Praline Sauce are such an irresistable breakfast, appetizer or side dish. They’re so delicious and they melt right in your mouth!



  • 1 tube flaky biscuits
  • 1 cup butter-flavored shortening, for frying
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter
  • 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Melt butter in a medium, heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Add sugar and whisk until sugar melts and mixture begins to boil, about 5 minutes. Stir in milk, vanilla, and pecans until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Separate biscuits and cut into fourths. In heavy-bottomed skillet, melt the shortening over medium heat until it reaches 325 degrees F. Fry biscuit quarters in batches until golden on each side. Biscuits will cook very quickly. Dust generously with powdered sugar and serve immediately with praline sauce.
