No batter just biscuits! Can't even tell the difference, and they are small enough to sample every flavor!


For Frying - 

1 tube Pilsbury biscuits (small not grands)

vegetable oil


For Topping - 

powdered sugar

sugar

cinnamon/sugar mixture


1. Fill a small skillet about halfway with vegatable oil

2. Warm oil on medium heat for 5-10 minutes (do not put on high heat or doughuts will fry too fast and be raw in center)

3. Flatten each biscuit with fingers and cut a circle in center (I use a frosting tip to pop it out, can also use a hot sauce cap or something else small in the fridge)

4. Drop doughnuts in oil and fry each side until golden (30-90 seconds) using tongs to flip

5. Place on paper towels to remove excess oil

6. Toss warm doughnuts in powdered sugar, sugar, and cinnamon sugar mixtures

7. Best enjoyed fresh, and so addicting!
