This morning I was taken back to the second grade.
When we were in second grade, someone got the idea that we would sell doughnuts at lunchtimein the cafeteria. I think 3 were 50 cents, and they were simple plain doughnuts rolled in cinnamon sugar. I can remember the moms out in the hall outside the cafeteria making them in electric skillets, and I remember very vividly how they tasted, the crunch of the sugar. I have been thinking about recreating that for years.
Well, this morning, I came as close as I think I can get for a 25 year old memory. These doughnuts are a quick, easy treat, for weekends or week-days. They took me about 10 minutes to make, and turned out yummy! The ingredient list is simple: one can of refrigerator biscuits(NOT THE FLAKY KIND), 4 TBSP butter-melted, cinnamon sugar, vegetable oil.
Just heat about 1/2-inch of the oil in a skillet to medium-high heat. Take a small round cookie cutter and cut out a hole in your biscuits(You could probably leave them whole also). Once oil is hot, place biscuit rings in oil until nicely browned, turning once. Repeat with doughnut holes. Remove from oil to paper towels to drain. Roll in melted butter, then in cinnamon sugar. Eat. Eat again…..and again…..and again…..and don’t forget about the doughnut holes……
You could always glaze these with a nice powdered sugar/milk/vanilla glaze as well. Good luck, they are dangerous.
