Easy Peasy Doughnuts

I guess it's national doughnut day on June 5th. It seems everything has its own day anymore.
We didn't need a particular day to make these doughnuts. Sometimes on Sunday nights as a child, these would join the rotation of popcorn and orange julius. That was a good night! 

You will be stunned how easy these are to whip up. If the list of ingredients doesn't pique your interest the taste will.

1 pkg. of refrigerated biscuits
Vegetable Oil

Your choice of topping:
mixture of cinnamon sugar
powdered sugar

Heat the oil in a medium-sized frying pan on the stove to medium-high heat.

Open your package of refrigerated biscuits (my favorite part of the whole process as a child). Separate the biscuits out on a flat surface and punch out the holes with a doughnut hole cutter or small cookie cutter to make a doughnut. You can save the holes to fry up as well.

Once the oil has heated, gently place each doughnut into the oil, turning them once the first side is light brown. After both sides are fried, remove them and place them onto a plate lined with a paper towel. Once cooled slightly, dip the doughnuts into a bowl of cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar. Let rest on a separate plate until all are made.

They are best eaten fresh.
