Canned Biscuit Dough Donuts And Holes
Recipe By: Paula Deen
Peanut oil -- for frying
1 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 cups ugar
2 cup confectioners' sugar -- divided
5 tablespoons milk -- divided
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 can large buttermilk biscuits
Heat 2 inches peanut oil in a large pot or Dutch oven to 350 degrees F.
In a shallow bowl, stir together the ground cinnamon and sugar and
set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together 1 cup of confectioners'
sugar, 2 tablespoons of milk and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, set
aside. This is the vanilla icing. In another bowl, whisk together 1
cup of confectioners' sugar, 1/4 cup of cocoa powder and 3
tablespoons of milk and set aside. This is the chocolate icing.
Lay out the biscuits on a cutting board and with a 1 1/2-inch round
cookie or biscuit cutter, cut out a hole from the middle of each
biscuit. Fry them in the oil until golden and then flip with tongs to
fry the other side. You can even fry the donut holes. Drain on paper
towels and then toss in the cinnamon-sugar or ice and decorate with
sprinkles, as desired.
