1 can Pillsbury buttermilk flakey biscuits
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon (or to your liking)
oil for frying (I use safflower oil)
Take out the biscuits and lay a few out on a cutting board or pastry mat. I used 4 biscuits. Using a biscuit cutter or small glass, cut a hole from the middle of the biscuits. Save the middle for donut holes. Alternatively, you could have the children use their thumbs to push through to make a hole.
In a deep sided pan, heat enough oil to cover half way up the donut. I used about 2 inches. Heat oil until just shimmering. Drop in donuts, brown on one side, flip. Remove to a plate lined with paper towels for a moment (to removed excess grease) then dip the donuts in the sugar cinnamon mixture. You could also do this in a paper bag, shake donuts to coat but a shallow bowl works too. You could also use powdered sugar.
