Donuts Donuts Donuts

Our wonderful Primary President told me about a childhood memory she had when her mom would make donuts for her big family. She said the donuts went faster then her mom could make them, which is really saying something because these are quick! They are so delicious, I ate 3! My 10 month old love the donut holes and my 3 year old especially loved the sugary coating.


canned biscuit dough, I used the buttermilk variety and liked it but flaky doesn't work well
1/2 C sugar
shortening or vegetable oil

Heat the shortening or oil in a deep skillet over medium heat, enough to be about 1/3 to 1/2 inch deep. Put sugar into a coating tray or plate, set aside. Using a small cookie cutter or knife, make holes in each biscuit. Save the "holes" to fry too. The oil is ready when a wooden or bamboo spoon bubbles when inserted into the hot oil. Use one of the small "holes" to test the oil. Fry each side until golden brown. Remove from oil, and immediately toss into sugar, coating all sides. Serve immediately, if not sooner.
