Easy Doughnuts

These were always a special treat in my house growing up! I was always amazed that my mom could make homemade doughnuts but never realized how easy her secret really was!

  • refrigerated biscuit dough
  • vegetable oil
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  1. Cut the center from the biscuits using something round (My mom always used a turkey baster with the bulb removed). This will give you dough for both doughnuts and doughnut holes.
  2. Heat oil.
  3. Mix together cinnamon and sugar in a shallow bowl.
  4. Fry dough rings and holes until golden brown. Turn half way through.
  5. Carefully remove from hot oil using a slotted spoon.
  6. Allow doughnuts to cool on brown paper or paper towels to remove some of the excess oil.
  7. When cooled, roll doughnuts in cinnamon sugar mixture.
