My sister-in-law made some of these one late night and told me it was something her mom had made the kids when they were young. Very quick and easy and YUMMY! We normally shape and fry the dough and dip it in chocolate frosting.

My mom always did these for us. A good buttermilk refrigerated biscuit works best. We also make glazes for ours and sprinkles. It make for a great children activity when you need to let the kids help cook. Mom frys and the kids get to decorate their own donuts. Fun!
