A tradition at our house every Christmas has been to have homemade donuts that get dipped into frosting and some sort of topping. I figured I’d pass this along since it’s sooo easy to make and they are sooo good.
- 1 (or more) cans of refrigerated Biscuits such as Immaculate buttermilk Biscuits
- Oil for frying
- Powdered Sugar Frosting (sample recipe)
- needs to be thick enough to not drip off the donuts after you dip them
- Toppings (chopped peanuts, jimmies/sprinkles, coconut, mini chocolate chips, etc)
- Put the oil into a frying pan and heat it to around 350 degrees
- While oil is heating, open up the package of biscuits and separate them
- Use a small, round cookie cuter (or whatever else you have handy) to remove the center of the donuts.
- Each biscuit yields one donut and one donut hole
- When the oil is hot enough, carefully drop donuts and holes into the oil and fry for about 1 minute per side (check them after a bit to make sure they don’t burn)
- When each donut is cooked, remove it from the oil and set it on a paper towel covered plate.
- Pick up one donut or donut hole
- Dip into the frosting until well coated
- Dip into your topping of choice
- Eat and Enjoy
