Super easy! Used my new deep fryer (set at 375 degrees) and the biscuits were just the right size for kids to eat. Make sure you have more than one can of biscuits, because you can never have enough of these!

We use this recipe and make doughnuts and doughnut holes as a fund raiser at our campgrounds every summer. We sold over 3,000 doughnuts and holes this summer.
We do not flatten the dough and use a small round cookie cutter to cut out the centers.
We put paper bags of sugar, powdered sugar and cinnamon sugar out and let people choose their choice of topping. No butter brush is needed for this variation.
We have also found through trial that the best biscuits were the less expensive store brands.
It is great fun and oh so tasty!!!

VERY delicious. I made in my deep fryer and they were done in no time! I used a small can of biscuits and it was perfect for 2 people.I used the no fat spray butter and then sprinkled with cinnamon/sugar.

These were awesome! Better if you don't get them toooo thin as they are just then like crispy crackers. They were delicious and so easy though! They are also good for camping! We wrap these around round dowels and roast them over the fire.

I made the donut version of these - they are so tasty! Used my cast iron skillet, shook them in bags containing powdered sugar and cinnamon sugar, and brought them to my neighbor for her birthday. She had to hide them so her kids wouldn't eat all of them!

I agree... these are DONUT.... elephant ears are made with Puff Pastry.

Easy & quick. However would consider them to be donuts versus elephant ears. Although flattened out, biscuits still puff up when fried. Name should be "Easy Donuts"
