Shortcut Gingerbread Beignets

Posted by on December 5 2012 in Desserts, Featured, Holiday, Recipe

Howdy!  So, how’s everyone coming with those holiday gifts and such? I am being a big giant procrastinator this year, for sure!  I usually make gifts for peeps because 1) I like to get my craft on and 2) I’m super cheap.  That didn’t sound right.  I’m frugal.  Better word choice.. Anyways, I’ve only bought about 25% of my list (eek!) and haven’t made a darn thing yet.  Not panicking, not panicking…breathe.

OK, so seeing as how I have a lot on my proverbial plate, I don’t have a lot of time to make a yeast dough with rise time and blah blah blah. Clearly,  I don’t even have time to construct proper sentences.

So here’s a quickie recipe to brighten your holidays!

Shortcut Gingerbread Beignets

makes 20

1 16 oz can of biscuits
1/4 cup molasses
heaping 1/2 tsp cinnamon
heaping 1/2 tsp nutmeg
heaping 1/2 tsp ginger
heaping 1/2 tsp cloves
flour for rolling
oil for frying (I used canola)
powdered sugar, whipped cream for serving

Knead the spices and molasses into the biscuit dough until combined.  Flour your countertop (or parchment paper) and roll the dough out to about 1/8″-1/4″ thickness.  Cut in 2″ squares.

Heat your oil to 325 degrees and fry for about 4 minutes or until done in the middle.  You might need to do a test one.

Dust with powdered sugar for serving.

Enjoy :)

It’s the perfect fuel for online shopping!
