Easy Biscuit Donuts

  • 1 ten count can Grands biscuits (or your preference)
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1½ Tablespoon cinnamon
  • Peanut (or Vegetable) Oil For Frying

Directions
Mix your cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl and set aside. Use a small round cookie cutter to cut holes in the center of your biscuit dough. You can also use a lid…whatever works…

Pour your oil in a skillet. You need a little less than a half inch. Heat your oil on medium to medium high for several minutes. We want it to be hot so that our doughnuts are instantly seared when they enter it. This prevents them from absorbing too much of the oil and being soggy.

Fry the donuts in batches. It should only take about 1 minute on each side before you turn them over. Place them on paper towels. Dip both sides in the cinnamon sugar mixture. You can also dip them in melted butter before you add the sugar, but we like them without it.

We like flaky layers, but any kind of canned biscuits will work great…
