When you make these...
I saw this pop up on Pinterest a couple of weeks ago. I've made these before (without the butter), several years ago, and decided to make them for my kids earlier this week as a special treat on their day off from school.
Let's just say...they LOVED them!! They even had fun helping make them!
You will need:
Vegetable oil (enough to fill your pan to about 1/2" deep)
4 T. Butter, melted
Sugar & Cinnamon Mixture
Grands Biscuits (do not use the flaky layered type)
Heat up the oil on medium heat. While this is heating up, cut the centers out of the biscuits. (I used a small star cookie cutter we have.) When the oil is hot, place the donuts in the oil. When the one side is golden brown, flip with tongs and cook until other side is golden brown. When they are finished cooking, place on a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb the excess oil.
When the donuts have cooled enough, dip one side in the melted butter, let the extra drip off and then dip in the cinnamon & sugar mixture. Repeat for the other side.
I thought these were best served warm, but my kids thought they were really good the next day too.
