Beignets and Praline Sauce

OK... words seriously can't even begin to describe this tantalizing treat. It's buttery, flaky, light, and just overall.....awesome. You really just need to try this your self. I got this recipe from Kevin and Amanda {blog}. And this recipe of hers is by far my favorite.

1 tube flaky biscuits
1 cup butter- flavored shortening, for frying
8 tablespoons (1stick) of butter
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

Melt butter in a medium, heavy bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Add sugar and whisk together until sugar melts and mixture begins to boil, about 5 minutes. Stir in milk, vanilla 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 brown on each side. Biscuits cook quickly, so about 30 seconds on each side.

 Dust generously with powdered sugar and serve immediately with praline sauce
