Semi-Homemade Doughnuts

These are the easiest doughnuts you will ever make! All it takes is some refrigerated biscuit dough and some cinnamon-sugar. You can make them in a pan of hot oil on your stove top (at least 2 inches of oil) but I usually use our deep fryer. If you don't have a small circle cutter, improvise! I used a medicine cup from children's medicine!


Refrigerated biscuit dough
Cinnamon sugar (or powdered sugar or even frosting)
Cooking oil (I usually just use Crisco when I deep fry)

What you do:

1. Open up the biscuit tube and spread out the biscuits.

2. Use a circle cutter to cut a circle out of the center of each biscuit.

3. Drop biscuits in hot oil. They poof up a bit, so just do a few at a time.

4. Don't go anywhere... these cook fast.

5. After a minute or two, flip the doughnut using a fork.

6. Allow the other side to cook for about a minute or until golden brown.

7. Remove from oil, quickly shake off any access oil and immediately roll doughnut in cinnamon sugar.

8. Try not to eat them all in one sitting. :)

Ack! You're killing me! I loooove doughnuts. I think I could even manage those. ;)

(I have to admit that I thought they were onion rings when I first saw the picture though. LOL)

I think the fact that you have the exact same deep-fryer as me is a sign I must make these. Thanks for the inspiration! My kids will love them.

Nothing beats homemade donuts! Yum! The ones with a little sugar sprinkled on top are some of the tastiest :).
