Super Simple Donuts

The Best Donuts Ever.

1 tube refrigerated biscuits (We used Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits)
¼ inch of oil in a medium to large pan
Cookie sheet or large plate with paper towel on top (to place doughnuts on and sprinkle with sugar)
Sugar (as much/little as you want to sprinkle on your donuts!)
Small round cookie cutter (I used the wide end of a frosting tip from a frosting bag-it made perfect Donut holes!)

Heat oil in pan over Medium heat.
Drop in biscuits (I wouldn't do more than 4-6 at a time because you want to flip and remove them quickly)
Allow to fry 15 seconds on first side. Flip over, allow to fry 15 seconds more. Remove from oil, place on paper towel and sprinkle (or let the kids sprinkle) sugar all over them!
Voila! Makes 10 Donuts and 10 Donut Holes! (duh, I know) Not an ounce of biscuit taste to'll be pleasantly surprised at how simple, fast, and delicious these really are!!

*You can fry up your donut holes too, just eyeball them, they are hard to "flip" just stir them around a little in the oil until they start to brown-then take them out!
*Other variations, mix cinnamon and sugar to sprinkle on top. Or you can toss them in a bowl (or paper bag like my Maw-maw used to do it!) of Confectioner's Sugar to make Powdered Sugar Donuts!
*Toppings: you can use vanilla frosting and add sprinkles for a fun twist!
