Donut Frenzy

When I was a little girl, I never wanted for much of anything. Then when I was around 6th grade we moved to another state. Around 7th or 8th grade I remember things getting much tighter. So tight, that one package of Buddig ham fed four people.

My dad would do all kinds of things to help my brother and I have small treats, even on our limited budget. One little trick I remember fondly. And I still do the same thing today when I feel a need for sweets coming on, or I just want to give the boys a treat on a Sunday morning.
Biscuit donuts are easy and delicious. They are very versatile in how you form them, and even how you top them.
Enjoy this wisdom....

Biscuit Donuts

1 can canned biscuits
deep fryer (I use a frying pan with oil)
Paper bag

First, open the biscuits and separate the individual pieces.
I like donut holes, so I take each individual biscuit and either rip it or use a pizza cutter and turn 1 biscuit into 4 small pieces. So a package of 10 biscuits will generate 40 donut holes.

Roll each piece into a ball and fry until golden brown.

Drain on a paper towel or brown grocery sack for just a minute, then put donut holes into paper sack with sugar.
Shake the bag, then remove donut holes and place on plate to serve.

You can even use cinnamon sugar, or cocoa powder, or leave the donuts as they are.
If you choose to make traditional donuts, you can top them with the frosting of your choice or just use a sugar glaze.
There are so many variations, have fu
