Oh, Do You Know the "Donut" Man??

Since fall is quickly slipping away (it is currently 36* here...BRRRR!) I wanted to share this COOL RECIPE before it's too late!! It's SUPER easy (although not so extremely healthy) but a really fun treat!!

"Home-made" Donuts
1 tube of refrigerated biscuit dough
vegetable oil
powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar (for topping)

1. Heat oil in pan over med-high heat for several minutes.

2. Remove biscuits & find something round that is quite a bit smaller. Cut out a hole in each biscuit. Save the holes.

3. Place as many donuts in the pan that will fit. Cook appx. 3-4 min each side, watching not to overcook (my first batch was a bit dark). Don't forget about the holes!! They make perfect minis for the kids!!

4. Roll in a bounty of confectioners sugar or sprinkle with cinnamon sugar to your liking.

ENJOY!!!! And let me know if you try it out and what you think!

I have made this before but not with my kids - maybe in the future but tonight we did pumpkin rolls.

I haven't made donuts yet on the stove. I remember making them in the deep fryer as a kid. And of course the best part was putting them in the paper bag to coat them with sugar - we would shake the bag all around! We just put plain sugar on ours.

So yummy! Your recipe takes me back- this is how my mom makes donuts, although I haven't tried it yet! I remember eating them around a fire with hot apple cider. Now I'm hungry...

okay--this I will have to try!!! Your picture of the donuts looks so yummy! At first, because of the picture, I thought you were going to say that you made them with the insides of a pumpkin!! ;)
