The Runaway Beignet

You’re not gonna taste this little beignet! In this confectionary folktale adaptation, a lonely baker gets his wish when he sprinkles magic sugar on a beignet and it comes to life. The little beignet boy runs away but is in danger of being eaten by the hungry people of New Orleans. He leads a wild chase through the French Quarter, visiting famous sights along the way. This delightful book, with wacky illustrations and a sassy refrain, will run straight into readers’ hearts.

Quick and Easy : Biscuit Beignet

  • 1can (12 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Flaky Layers Buttermilk Biscuits (10 Count)
  • Vegetable oil for deep frying
  • Powdered sugar

Separate dough into 10 biscuits; cut each biscuit into quarters. In deep fryer or heavy saucepan, heat 2 inches oil to 350°F. Fry biscuit quarters, in batches, in hot oil 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels; sprinkle generously with powdered sugar. Serve hot.
