Biscuit Dough Donuts

It was probably not the best idea to make these at home by myself... any preconceived notions of self-control went flying out the window after I took my first bite.

This Paula Deen recipe is totally decadent and will be sure to impress your guests when you handily whip up a batch of donuts at home for breakfast (or even better, for dessert!).

(I used canola oil instead of peanut oil which has a high enough smoking point to handle this recipe -- make sure to be extremely careful, no one wants 350 degree oil burns!)

First, pop open your can of biscuits and cut out holes in the center (I used a knife):

Heat your oil to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and place the dough rings (and soon to be donut holes) in the heated oil, flipping with tongs until golden on both sides (about 90 seconds total).  Remove donuts with tongs and place on paper towels until cooled.

Finally, top with cinnamon and sugar mix or icing and sprinkles and serve!
