Homemade donuts

Ingredients
Peanut oil, for frying
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
Icings:
2 cups confectioners’ sugar, divided
5 tablespoons milk, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 cans large buttermilk biscuits
Colored sprinkles
Chocolate sprinkles
Directions
Heat 2 inches peanut oil in a large pot or Dutch oven to 350 degrees F.

In a shallow bowl, stir together the ground cinnamon and sugar and set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together 1 cup of confectioners’ sugar, 2 tablespoons of milk and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, set aside. This is the vanilla icing. In another bowl, whisk together 1 cup of confectioners’ sugar, 1/4 cup of cocoa powder and 3 tablespoons of milk and set aside. This is the chocolate icing.

Lay out the biscuits on a cutting board and with a 1 1/2-inch round cookie or biscuit cutter, cut out a hole from the middle of each biscuit. Fry them in the oil until golden and then flip with tongs to fry the other side. You can even fry the donut holes. Drain on paper towels and then toss in the cinnamon-sugar or ice and decorate with sprinkles, as desired.

    J8 and I have made these. Takes me back to my childhood when my mom would make them for us. I’m going to share these next week. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

      My mom used to make them too. E and I haven’t yet, but he’s not a biscuit eater, but he might like these! I think the acorn deal would get him to try though…
