Pass the Doughnuts

Traditions...isn't it funny how certain things just seem right and they carry on from generation to generation? I know that my girls will be making the same recipes that have been passed down through our families. Grandma W's Mushroom Soup, Grandma N's Swedish Meatballs, Aunt Esther's Chocolate Cake to name a few...

Mom used to make these light, sweet doughnuts when we were kids and now they have become one of my kids favorite weekend delicacies. They could not be easier to make on a sleepy Saturday or Sunday morning. I encourage you to try for yourself you will not be disappointed.

1 package of refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
vegetable or canola oil
sugar or cinnamon sugar

Fill a small saucepan 1/3 to 1/2 full with the oil on medium heat not too hot. While it is warming open your biscuits and with a pop bottle cap cut your holes in the middle of the bisquit, these will become your doughnut holes! When you are done cutting out the holes, start by gently dropping one of the holes in the oil. When it starts to brown add the others your oil is now hot enough. With a slotted spoon take out and drain on a plate with paper towels, while still warm, but not hot, roll in your sugar and put on another plate. Continue adding the rest of the holes and doughnuts into the oil and rolling in the sugar till done. That is it. Total process takes maybe 10-15 minutes and your done.

Serve with coffee or milk~DELICIOUS!
