Blue Ribbon Recipe

Easy to make and delicious, these sweet biscuits remind us of a beignet. It's a creative way to use canned biscuits. Not having to prepare a dough, means you can make these whenever you crave a sweet treat. Sweet and filled with cinnamon and nutmeg flavor, they'd be a delicious addition to any brunch menu too.
