Easy Donuts

Easy Donuts
I love donuts.  The other day I went to the post office and in the 10 seconds I was walking to my car, I saw 2 people carrying donut boxes from the local bakery.  Oh, what a craving struck!  I didn't give in and buy any, but when I got home and remember this recipe, I just had to make it!  It it so simple, it really takes only about 10 minutes and you can enjoy a delicious fresh donut!

You will need:
1 can of buttermilk biscuits
oil for frying
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 Tablespoon milk

1.  In your fryer or a 10 inch skillet (I used my skillet) pour enough oil to fry donuts.  My oil came about an inch high in my pan.

2.  Heat oil until hot enough to fry.

3.  Remove biscuits from pan and cut out the center to form a donut.  I didn't have a small enough cutter, so I used the cap to my vanilla.  It was the perfect size!  You'll end up with 10 donuts and 10 donut holes.

4.  Fry 5 donuts at a time, flipping over when donuts are brown.  Then fry donut holes.

5.  After frying, place donuts on a paper towel covered plate to drain.

6.  Allow donuts to cool while you mix together the powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk to form a thin icing.

7.  Dip donuts into icing and place on a cookie sheet until icing hardens.

These are best eaten within a day and can be stored in an airtight container.
