... DONUTS

First, a note about our host ~
Mrs Nesbitt, along with The ABC Wednesday Team (Cheryl, Donna, Gattina, Helen, Joyce, Leslie, Natalie, Sylvia, Troy and Roger) host this weekly meme. 


CAUTION ~ CAUTION ~ CAUTION
Before you look at these photos, let me give you fair warning. I have never posted photos of my kitchen. WHY?? Because it is sooooooo out of date and ugly. 
My home and kitchen were built some 40 odd years ago. Everything(in the kitchen) is falling apart. As a result, later this year we will be remodeling it. BOY ... will I be glad to get rid if the brown grout on my counter top!


Have you bought donuts lately? I can not believe how much they cost. I no longer have small children in my home, but even the "big ones" enjoy donuts every once in a while.


Here is a fun, quick, and easy way to enjoy warm donuts, practically, in just a few minutes.


What you need:  Oil, pan for cooking, bowl of sugar, tube of biscuits, a small cookie cutter for holes, a large slotted spoon, a paper plate and paper toweling. **There are several "cooks" in my home and not everything gets back to where it belongs. Today I used a bottle cap to cut my holes.**

Pour oil into pan and turn on the burner.

While you are waiting for oil to heat up open biscuits.


Use your cookie cutter or bottle cap to cut holes.
You may want to flour your cutter, but it really isn't a issue.


  When the oil is hot ( you will hear crackling noises from the oil), 
carefully add you holes. They will sink to the bottom,
 but within seconds they rise to the top of the pan. 

                                       

                  When the are slightly tan, turn them with a slotted spoon.
                                
                                      

   I turn holes and donuts 2 times to try and cook evenly.


Use your slotted spoon to get the holes out of the hot grease.



Drain on a paper plate and paper toweling


Roll the holes in sugar (powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar)
and place on plate. (Sorry for the fuzzy pic). 


Now, cook the biscuits the same way.




                                      They are best when served warm ... 
                   and don't forget to shake off the EXTRA sugar.

They look delicious. This big kid (i.e. grandfather) occasionally likes donuts. I'm not motivated enough to cook them myself, but maybe I'll stop by the market tomorrow.
