Semi-Homemade Donuts

This is such a fun recipe to make. It's so easy and kids love decorating the donuts. They taste yummy too and are a lot less calories than any store bought donuts!

biscuit dough
small circle cutter ( I used a medicine cup from my toddlers Tylenol)
1/4 - 1/2 cup canola oil
paper towels
cinnamon and sugar, chocolate frosting and sprinkles, or powdered sugar

Open the biscuit can and spread all the rolls out. Then using a small circle cutter, press out a donut hole right in the middle (don't forget to save the holes, they cook up nicely too). Heat oil in a pan on medium heat. Depending on how many you make you will need more oil. You want enough oil to cover half of the donut when cooking. Place 3-4 doughy donuts into the pan and leave until bottom is golden brown. They cook fast so keep a good eye on them! then turn them over and cook another minute or so. Using tongs, place the cooked donut on paper towels to drain and cool slightly. Top donuts with cinnamon and sugar, powdered sugar, chocolate frosting with sprinkles, or anything else you can think of!
