Quick Donuts

Now that the holidays are over, work has started and so has school. You're probably starting to run around like a crazy person again and looking for shortcuts to your meals, especially on the weekends with sports, errands and general hysteria. When your child has that sleepover that leaves you responsible for too many kids stomachs, or when you just want to be lazy (or if yo uare pregnant, or not!, and crave a quick sweet treat) just grab a few cans of grands biscuits and kick up your heels!

We actually used to make these when I was younger and pinterest reminded me of them. They are warm and soft and sugary - all things that are good! They also freeze pretty well if you put them in right after they have cooled.

Grands Biscuit Donuts
Grands Bisuits, as many cans as you'd like!
Vegetable Oil, for frying

Add about a 1/2 inch of oil to a deep frying pan and turn to medium low.

Using a bottle cap, or cocktail shaker top like me, punch a hole in the middle of each biscuit and separate the 2 parts.

Mix cinnamon and sugar together in a shallow bowl (add more sugar than cinnamon)

When the oil begins to bubble on the bottom, stick a dough ball in the oil - if it starts to sizzle then the oil is ready.

Place donuts and holes in the oil and fry for about a minute, then use a slatted spoon to flip and cook the other side. Take out of oil and place on a paper towel, then roll in the cinnamon/sugar mix. Bask in the warm deliciousness before they get cold and go on with the rest of your day :)

*it is best to do these in batches of 3 donuts at a time, so that when you take them out of the oil you can roll them in the sugar before they get too dry*
