Easy Peasy Doughnuts! Fun For all!

Standard

To make 10 donuts and doughnut holes, you’ll need:

* 1 can buttermilk biscuits
* 1/2 – 1 cup vegetable oil
* cinnamon / sugar mix
* powdered sugar
* chocolate frosting & sprinkles (optional)

Pour the oil in a pan and place over medium heat. Arrange all of the biscuits on a plate or cutting board. Use a small circle-shaped cutter to press firmly while rotating to carefully remove the centers from the dough. The center of the wreath from my Christmas cookie cutter collection was just the right size.

Place 5 of your donuts in the heated oil. Watch very closely, because they only take a few short minutes to fry. Flip them over as soon as they turn a nice golden brown color, and repeat this process with all sides of your donuts. Place them on a paper towel to cool. The little donut holes can be cooked all at the same time, however they finish cooking very quickly so don’t let them burn!

Sprinkle your donuts with a generous coating of cinnamon/sugar or powered sugar. You can also place them into a sandwich bag in each mixture to coat evenly, if you prefer.You can also spread the tops with chocolate frosting and dipping them into candy sprinkles (or nuts)
