Homemade Doughnuts, Sorta

Every Saturday is doughnut day in our house. I'm not too fond of the round little things but J and Ben love them .

Usually we pick up our favorites from Casey's, but a few weekends ago I decided to make my own.

Although I've found lots of great recipes for homemade doughnut dough, I didn't want to go that far into homemade land. 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.

To make these,

You'll need:
- 1 can Grands Pillsbury biscuits (do not get the flaky ones, please:))
-Vegetable Oil

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

Once oil is heated, place doughnuts in the oil.

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

Once doughnuts are golden brown, place on a paper towel to drain excess oil, then coat with 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.
