I am notorious for not having all of the ingredients I need for a recipe.
And then I wing it.
And I substitute this for that.
And then the pizza man arrives with dinner.
But this is one recipe I am always prepared for because it only takes three ingredients (or four if you want more than one type of donut).
Fill a small, deep pot 1/2 to 1/3 the way full with vegetable oil. Heat over medium until oil is ready for frying.
While waiting for oil to heat, separate biscuits and poke a hole in the center of each. For thinner, fluffier donuts, separate biscuit into two by peeling in half horizontally.
Before beginning to fry, fill baggies 1/3 way full with powdered sugar or cinnamon and sugar.
Place dough carefully into oil one at a time, using tongs to turn. They will cook quickly, about 10 seconds on each side.
Set donuts on paper towel to soak up oil and then begin transferring to baggies with powdered sugar or cinnamon.
Seal baggie around one donut and shake until covered.
Remove from baggie, shaking off excess sugar and enjoy!
*Pictures and process would be easier to follow if I had not been cooking with children and hot oil, but it would not have been any fun either.
