Biscuit Doughnuts

I should probably add a warning to this post:
These are AMAZING.
These are SIMPLE.
These are ADDICTING!
These will be INHALED!
I wish I was joking.
What was that you say? You’re going to run to the store right now and buy supplies?
I won’t judge you!
Growing up my Grandma used to make these doughnuts all the time for us. I decided to make them this year for our family Christmas party and everyone loved it! They definitely brought back some childhood memories for my cousins.
Start by heating oil for frying in a pan.
Open the biscuits and cut a hole out of the center to make your doughnut holes.

I tested the heat of the oil by placing a doughnut hole in it. Once it starts to bubble around it, the oil is at a good temperature.
Flip the doughnut over once the side in the oil has turned a nice golden brown.
 Once cooked, place them on paper towel to get rid of the excess oil.
Add cinnamon and sugar, sugar, and powdered sugar to three separate bags. Drop in some doughnuts, close the bag and shake them up!
These bad boys will literally melt in your mouth!
I think it’s safe to say you will double this recipe the next time you make them, just saying!
Biscuit Doughnuts
Makes 10 doughnuts/holes
One can Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits
Canola oil for frying
Cinnamon and sugar/sugar/powdered sugar for coating
Add enough oil for frying to a skillet and heat over medium heat. While the oil is heating open your can of biscuits. Cut out the middles of the biscuits to make doughnut holes. (I use a lemon juicer) Place a doughnut hole in the oil. When the oil is hot enough it will start bubbling around it. Cook until a golden brown and then flip. When the doughnuts are done frying place on paper towel covered plate. Allow to cool. Add cinnamon and sugar, sugar, and powdered sugar to three separate bags for coating. Drop the doughnuts/hole into the bags, close and shake to coat. ENJOY!
