These donuts, disguised under their sweet glaze and sprinkles, are really made out of biscuits, for a simple homemade bread donut! The inside still tasted a little like a biscuit, but they were definitely very simple to make, kid friendly (with adult help frying), and a fun way to turn an ordinary morning into a special occasion!

Homemade Biscuit Donuts

Yield: 8 standard biscuit donuts, or 10 jr.'s

Ingredients

Donuts:
1 can refrigerated biscuit dough
Oil for frying  

Glazes/Coatings:
Vanilla Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted (optional)
3-6 teaspoons cream, half & half or milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Chocolate Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted (optional)
3-6 teaspoons cream, half & half or milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cinnamon Sugar 
1/2 cup sugar + 1 tablespoon cinnamon

Powdered Sugar


Directions

1. Open can of biscuit dough and separate individual biscuits on baking sheet. I found "jr." biscuits and couldn't resist making mini "jr." donuts, but traditional size biscuits work too.

2. Cut out the middles with  round cookie cutter or any round shaped object you have in your kitchen (even try the twist top of a soda bottle). Use the middles to create donut holes!

3. Heat about 1-2 inches of oil in a deep sauce pan until it reaches 325 degrees F. Place biscuit dough into oil and fry on each side about a minute, until golden brown. I used the punched out centers to make donut holes. Place on a paper towel to drain.

4. You can choose to coat your donuts in cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar, or one of the glazes. For the glazes, simply combine all of the ingredients and stir with a fork until smooth, adding more liquid as necessary. I kept my glaze pretty thick, but you can microwave it for just a few seconds if it starts getting too thick for dipping. I coated my donuts in a layer of vanilla butter glaze, then glazed the tops in chocolate, and finished them off with some rainbow jimmies!

5. Enjoy! For more fun recipes and baking tricks, visit us on the web at dollhousebakeshoppe.com!
