Once I made these, I very seriously considered not posting the recipe.

I sort of liked being able to tell people I made these super fancy and delicious homemade donuts and them being so impressed and awe-struck. Fortunately, my pridefulness lost out and now everyone can know the amazingly-easy secret.

Before this, the thought of making my own donuts seemed really complicated and time intensive. Occasionally, I’d see a recipe that gets me excited to give it a shot, but then it requires  a special donut pan or something. I’m not really looking to inve$t in all that, if you know what I’m sayin’. These donuts made from store-bought refrigerated biscuit dough are your and my ticket to fresh donuts from home anytime.

Pillsbury-Biscuit Donuts
Makes 8 donuts

1 roll refrigerated biscuit dough (any kind but the flakey versions)
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 and 1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
Cinnamon sugar/Powdered sugar

Heat oil in skillet over medium heat. The 1/2 cup of oil may vary depending on your pan size, but you want it to be about a 1/2 inch deep. Meanwhile, cut holes in center of biscuit dough. A small cookie cutter would be perfect, but I made-do with an orange juice cap. Place donuts in pan and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.

Remove donuts from heat and coat in melted butter and cinnamon sugar.

Try to not eat them all in one sitting (although I did). We didn’t throw away the donut-centers, but instead made donut holes. Yum x2.
