"…And she smiles at the future." ~Proverbs 31:25

So, here’s a weird little thing about me: I don’t like donuts. You read that right. I. don’t. like. donuts. Glazed, chocolate-covered, loaded with sprinkles—doesn’t matter—they hold no appeal for me. I guess you could say I’m pretty much immune to just about every kind of donut on the planet.

Just about.

I am not immune to these:

These are the kind my mom made when I was a kid back in the…..er, back in another decade. I loved them then and my kiddos and I rediscovered them recently. Did I mention that these babies take literally 5 minutes to crank out?  So, why not drag the kids out of bed this Saturday and let them chef it out with you?

Start with a can of refrigerated biscuit dough—the super-cheap-O kind work great! Place each uncooked biscuit in the pan of hot oil and fry for just a minute or two (until golden brown) on each side…

…then immediately roll each one around on a plate of cinnamon-sugar.  That’s it!

(Or, maybe not.  My kids believe they need to look like actual donuts–with holes–as opposed to the little “pillows” I personally love. So, they cut out holes by pressing the lid from a 2L bottle into the middle of each biscuit before frying both rings and holes.)

I’d love to hear what you think if you try them out! As for me, I can no longer say a blanket, “I don’t like donuts.” And that’s a good thing, right?

Thanks for stopping by!

    Amy, my kids love these too. I make my own biscuits using Bisquick. So, some of the dough I cut into biscuits and some I cut into donut holes. I freeze them for weekday mornings. I just take them out of the freezer the night before I plan to use them.
