ok, i know i just put a slew of posts up, but i really have to share this, too. on saturday i was very, very naughty. i cast all health aside and made…semi-homemade donuts. fried in oil and everything. and they were totally worth it!
easy homemade donuts
this was my first time ever making donuts, so i cheated a bit and used the old standby – refrigerated biscuit dough. so easy. then i just used a water bottle cap to cut holes from the middle of the round biscuits to make them into donut shapes.
i dropped a few at a time into a big old pot of oil (heated to about 350 degrees). as soon as they browned on one side, i flipped them over and browned the other side, then took them out to rest on a paper toweled-covered plate.
i made a batch of cinnamon sugar to roll some of them in, and then a glaze (confectioner’s sugar, milk, and vanilla) for the rest.
these babies are SO good! the only down side is that they don’t keep well, so you will be forced to eat them all while still warm. or at least that’s what i tell myself.
