Vesper didn’t have school today so I decided it would be a good day to make doughnuts. Simple, yummy doughnuts!
There are only a few things one needs to have on hand to make these sinfully delicious nom-noms: A package of canned biscuits (it is my understanding that any type except the flaky layers kind will work). I used Pillsbury Grands!® refrigerated biscuits:
One also needs cooking oil, butter, cinnamon and sugar. That’s about it besides some paper towels, shallow dishes, tongs, a cookie cutter and a pan. Yep, easy peasy!
I separated the biscuits out onto a cutting board:
Then used a cookie cutter to make the doughnut holes:
Next, I added the dough to about a 1/2 inch of oil that I had warming up over medium heat:
I allowed the doughnuts to become golden brown on one side before flipping them with a pair of tongs to brown the second side. Once both sides were golden brown, I would remove them to paper towels to soak up the excess oil.
After the doughnuts were cool enough to touch, I dipped them in about four tablespoons of melted butter and allowed the extra to drip off. Then I rolled them around in a shallow dish of with a cinnamon and sugar mixture. I think next time, just for appearances, I will use a little more sugar in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. With the heavier cinnamon, they looked a little burnt (though they weren’t at all). They tasted divine!
These were SO easy to make and SO good! Perfect for a cold, wintery day off from school!
