Biscuit Beignets with Praline Sauce
|Biscuit beignets with praline sauce|
1 Cup Butter-Flavored Shortening (or just butter), for frying
8 Tbsp (1 stick) Butter
1 Cup Packed Dark Brown Sugar
3 Tbsp Milk
1/2 tsp Vanilla
1/4 Cup Chopped Walnuts
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.
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.
Wow, these are amazing. If you don’t have a sweet tooth, don’t make ’em, but if you do, you should probably quit everything you’re doing and make them right now. The buttery goodness of the biscuits with the sweet carmely praline sauce and the crunchy walnuts combine to make the perfect sugar-inducing coma…and its’ so worth it. Plus, it’s so easy to make.
