Preheat oil to 350 degrees: Fill a cast iron skillet with roughly 2 inches of oil. You want enough oil to deep fry the beignets. Heat the oil on medium temp until the oil reaches 350 degrees. (candy thermometers work great)
On cutting board, cut each biscuit into quarters. Shape each quarter into beignet shape by gently rolling the dough with your hands. This helps seal the edges of the dough to brace for the oil.
When the oil is nice and hot and reaches 350 degrees, you're ready to go! Drop in the biscuit quarters now referred to as beignet dough in the hot oil. Fry beignets for 1.5 minutes, flip and cook for another 1.5 minutes. The beignets should have floated to the top of the oil, not laying at the bottom of the skillet. Remove beignets from oil and place on a baker's cooling rack with paper towels underneath to catch the oil drain off.
While the beignets are still warm, sprinkle powdered sugar generously on top.
(It is important to sprinkle the powdered sugar on them while they are still warm!)
