Homemade donuts

My youngest grandson, Sloan, and I made homemade donuts this afternoon. We got the "recipe" from an employee at the local China Buffet. According to him, "very simple! Go to Wal-Mart and get some biscuits". Who knew? Here's how we made these delicious, fattening but easy donuts:

Canned biscuits - We started out making balls of each biscuit, but it works better just leaving them flat as they come out of the can.

Drop into hot oil - must be at least 325 degrees, but I turned my oil up higher.

Turn each biscuit as it browns; remove when golden brown and roll in sugar. I had some cinnamon sugar left over from making french toast.

Cool, if you can wait that long,then enjoy!

I did this for my kids ..only I punched a hole in the middle so it looked like a donut. It is a winner.

They look absolutely delicious! Shame we don't have anything similar to 'canned biscuits' in the UK, as they look so easy to make.

My mom used to make these when I had slumber parties. I love them. I love to make them for my girls now!
