Easy Biscuit Doughnuts
The Deen Bros. Cookbook Copyright 2007

½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Vegetable oil, for frying
1 12-ounce tube buttermilk biscuit dough

1. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
2. Fill a wide, shallow pan with 1 inch of oil. Heat the oil to 370 degrees.
3. Meanwhile, arrange the biscuits on a baking sheet. Using a 1-inch diameter round cookie cutter, cut out the center of each biscuit.
4. Drop the doughnuts into the hot oil and cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until golden brown, turning doughnuts if necessary. Transfer the doughnuts immediately to a baking sheet lined with paper towels and sprinkle generously with cinnamon sugar. Serve warm.

Makes 10 doughnuts.

I make a few changes to the above recipe. I do not cut out holes. I simply poke my finger through the middle of the biscuit and stretch a hole into it. Personally, I love the cinnamon and sugar topping but my kiddos prefer powered sugar. I toss the donuts in powered sugar until they are covered. These have become a favorite around here. “A” says they rank right up with
Krispy Kreme 😉
