simple & sweet

One of my favorite Sunday afternoon activities is attempting to master new recipes - and my boyfriend never objects when I decide to dedicate some time to this little hobby (I couldn't imagine why!). There is nothing I love more than finding recipes that look and taste like I've spent hours slaving, when in fact I've spent minutes.

Today I decided to whip up delicious cinnamon-sugar coated mini-donuts. After doing a bit of internet research I discovered that accomplishing this would be much easier than I ever imagined...rather than making the dough from scratch, simply buy premade biscuit dough from the refrigerator section - who would have thought?

These adorable little morsels took minutes, and made me feel like a little girl again.

[mini cinnamon-sugar donuts]
2 tubes buttermilk biscuit dough
peanut oil for frying

Fill a large dutch oven with 2 inches of peanut oil, heat to 350 degrees.
With a 1/2 round cookie cutter, cut the centers out of each biscuit. Reserve centers for donut holes.
Fry each donut & donut hole until golden brown.
Remove from oil, transfer immediately to paper towel lined plate.
Coat in cinnamon-sugar.
