Time to make the



(you should know that I had a whole other blog post planned and then I made these donuts, and well...you need to know about them.)


Somewhere along the way, I ran across a mention of making donuts out of biscuit dough. Now, I have a feeling that I am late to the party, but this sounded like an amazing idea to me. Perhaps that was because I had a value pack of biscuit dough in my fridge. So this
evening, after dinner I decided to give it a whirl.
I googled "biscuit donuts" and came a cross a recipe from Ms. Paula Deen. It felt right. I mean, if anyone should be creating a donut recipe, Paula Deen seemed like the right choice. Nothing against the other Food Network chefs, but I would exactly trust Giada with a donut recipe.

This recipe could not have been easier. Oil, biscuits, and all the fixin's to make a glaze. I popped holes into the center of the biscuits, dropped them into the hot oil and watched magic happen before my eyes. Raw biscuits with holes in the middle are not exactly a pretty sight. But, you pop them into hot oil and they puff up and turn a golden brown. After they are cooked, you put them on a rack to drain off the oil, dip them in the glaze and try to stop yourselffrom eating them all in one sitting. And....you can do the
same with the centers! Little donut holes that you sprinkle with brown and white sugar. Yummers!

Love this idea. I have never heard of making donuts from biscuit dough before. I always wanted to try to make them but it seemed too intimidating.

I brought them into work and the response was great! It was a win-win for everyone. They got a sweet treat during a long meeting and I wasn't left eating the whole pan by myself!
