Homemade Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

Every Saturday is doughnut day in our house. I'm more of bagel person than a donut person but J and Ben love them. Usually we pick up our favorites, but a few weekends ago I decided to make my own.

Although I've found lots of great recipes, a lot of them require homemade dough and I don't want to go that far into it. Let's face it, yeast scares me.

Instead I turned to the next best thing. A semi homemade recipe that resulted in beautifully shaped doughnuts that didn't quite taste like the traditional doughnut but were still enjoyable enough that J scarfed down 2.

What You Need:
- 1 can Grands Pillsbury biscuits (not get the flaky ones)
-Vegetable Oil

What To Do:
1. Start by separating each biscuit and cut a small whole in the middle of each one. I just used a pairing knife.

2. Once the oil is heated, place the doughnuts in the oil.

3. Cook for approximately 2 minutes or until golden brown and then flip, cooking on the other side.

4. Once doughnuts are done, place them on a paper towel to drain off the excess oil, then coat with the cinnamon and sugar mixture. I just mixed equal parts cinnamon and sugar.

Serve to two hungry boys or anyone else who happens to be hanging around.
