These were a rare and special treat my Mother would make for my brother and I when we were young. The topping I listed is sugar and cinnamon because that is what we always had as children. But these quick doughnuts can be topped with any number of things such as a chocolate glaze, powdered sugar or even a plain glaze sprinkled with nuts.
- deep frying oil
- 7 1⁄2 ounces buttermilk biscuits
- sugar (4 tablespoons sugar) or cinnamon-sugar mixture (4 tablespoons sugar to 1 teaspoon cinnamon)
- In deep fat fryer or heavy saucepan, heat about 1 quart oil to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Separate dough into 10 biscuits.
- Cut hole in center of biscuits, using small cookie cutter.
- Fry biscuits and holes in oil at 350 degrees Fahrenheit a few at a time for about 1-1/2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
- Drain on paper towels.
- While warm, roll in sugar or cinnamon and sugar mix.
I grew-up with my father cooking these and now cook them for my 4 children. They love the powerded sugar and the chocolate frosting.
I learned how to do this in Economics when I was in Jr. Hi--I am now 60+ yrs old. I liked them then and I like them now :-) We used to cut them in fours so they would be like doughnut holes--best when warm.
Just like Mom used to make. I remembered her using canned biscuits but not much else except that we kids loved them! Easy, yummy recipe!
