So when I got home I was determined to learn how to make my own beignets.

All the beignet recipes I looked at called for more patience than I have right now. 1-3 hours depending on the recipe because you can’t speed up the process of rising dough. SO, I’ve created a shortcut I am sharing with you today. Instead of making dough from scratch, you just need a package of crescent rolls. These beignet bites are a little different than a real beignet, but taste delicious and satisfy the craving for sure.


  • 1 Package crescent rolls
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut oil
  • 1/4 Cup Powered sugar
  • Large skillet and a spatula

  1. Melt the coconut oil in the skillet over medium heat. You can use another oil, but the coconut oil adds a nice extra flavor to the dough as it’s cooking.
  2. Unroll the crescent rolls  and cut into bite sized pieces. The end point of each crescent, just fold over itself to make a rectangle.
  3. Place the dough pieces in the skillet and allow to brown, 45 seconds to about a minute. Flip the bits over and brown on the other side. While cooking, the dough should rise a tiny bit, making them nice and fluffy.
  4. Place cooked dough pieces on a paper towel to allow to cool and soak up some of the oil.
  5. Place on a plate and generously sprinkle with powered sugar.
