They are the donuts you make with canned biscuits. You know. . . the biscuits you 'whop' on the side of the counter top to open.
Mom made these when we were kids.
You can top them with a cinnamon sugar mixture, confectioners sugar or a glaze.
Mix one cup of confectioners sugar, 1 tsp vanilla and 3 T of milk to make the glaze.
Next, put oil in the skillet. You can use a small skillet, that way you don't have to use so much oil. The oil only needs to be an inch or less deep in the skillet.
Whop your can of biscuits to open it up and put them down on a flat surface. I flattened mine out a little with a rolling pin. Take the middle out of your biscuit cutter and punch out a hole in the middle of the biscuit. If you don't have one of these, you can use a bottle cap or anything else you have that is the size of a donut hole.
Put them in the hot oil. Be careful and be quick! They only take what seems like a few seconds to turn golden brown underneath. Quickly flip them over with a fork or tongs and let them turn golden brown on the other side. Take them out of the skillet.
Do this with the holes and the donuts.
Now comes the fun part. Use your imagination and top them with whatever you have a taste for. You can dip them in the glaze or sprinkle both sides with a cinnamon/sugar mixture or confectioners sugar.
I must admit, I like the cinnamon/sugar and confectioners sugar topping the best.
Aren't they pretty? Eat and enjoy!
