Biscuit Donuts

My favorite morning sweet as a child was biscuit donuts. My mom would fry up a batch anytime a friend or cousin had spent the night. She would use a can of Pillsbury Buttermilk biscuits and a thimble to cut a whole into each one. Fried up quickly in a light oil, they need only a bit of powdered sugar to finish off these fried beauties. They also make a great Hannukah treat! The trick to making them light and airy is to keep the oil at a steady temp (375F) so that the middle is baking as the outside is browning.
There was a double sleepover at our house last night and I couldn't think of a better way to treat all four boys this morning!
