Bomb Diggity Donuts

Wow! I can't believe Thanksgiving is just a week away!  It seems like once we get past Halloween time just spins forward racing to the end of the Year.  Halloween wasn't even over and stores were putting out Christmas displays.  I almost have an anxiety attack at the anticipation over everything I need to get done in just a few short weeks.  Now I am at the point of looking for shortcuts to getting little tasks done so I can spend more time on bigger, more detail oriented needs.

Today is just one of those days where I need to just get things done.  Happy Veteran's Day out there to any military bloggers who might join us today!  We love you and are proud of the job you are doing!  So this sweet treat is dedicated to all those serving our country and their families that await their return.

This donut treat is something my mom made for us when we were little kids.  We all have a sweet tooth and when you are on a budget, you get creative.  All you need is some refrigerator biscuits and a little creativity!

Bomb Diggity Donuts

1 Tube refrigerator biscuits/rolls (I used Grands)
oil for frying
Toppings of your choice

For Cinnamon Sugar I used 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup powdered sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon.  Mixed together in a pie plate for dipping once the donuts are cooked.

Heat your oil on medium heat until water makes it crackle.  Take your biscuits/rolls out of the tube packaging, poke a hole in the middle of your dough, stretch it some because it will close some during the cooking process.  Cook on both sides until a golden brown.  About 3-5 minutes per side. 

Take your hot donuts and drop them in your plate of cinnamon sugar mix, shake off excess and place on a paper towel lined plate.  Serve warm.

Other toppings to consider would be frosting, chopped nuts, melted jam....let your imagination go wild on this one!  Great for the holidays for breakfast when you have a full house and don't want to be in the kitchen all morning.
