These beignet-style biscuits will quickly become a family favorite for a special breakfast or an afternoon treat!


  • 31/2 cups Gold Medal® Better for Bread™ flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 (1/4-ounce) package active dry yeast (21/4 teaspoons)
  • 11/2 cups heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • powdered sugar, for dusting


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt and yeast. In a medium bowl, whisk together the heavy cream, butter and egg. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add the cream mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon until just combined.
  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 5 minutes. Form dough into a ball and place in a large buttered bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F. On a lightly floured surface, gently press dough into a 1/2-inch thick square. Using a dough cutter or sharp knife, cut into about 42 small squares and arrange on a parchment-lined baking sheet about 1/2-inch apart. Bake until puffed and golden brown, about 20 minutes.
  4. Immediately sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve warm with chocolate sauce or honey.
