When I was a small child, my Mom used to make it a special trip. We’d go shopping for something at the local Rosco Tempo and then we’d stop off and get a Winchell’s Donut.
There is no more Rosco Tempo’s and no more Winchell’s. We don’t even have a Krispy Kreme. And the donut shop we do have, we don’t like.
But I wanted a donut. Now.
I figured, why not make them? How hard could it be?
With this recipe, not hard at all.
Canned Biscuit Donuts
Lets make the glaze first. Yes, I said glaze. These are soooooo good with a little glaze (OK, ALOT of glaze) on them. That way, when the donuts are done, you can dunk and eat right away.
Take 3 cups of powdered sugar, 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1/2 cup cool water (not noted in the photo cause I forgot) and whisk together in a large bowl until smooth.
It should look something like this…
Now we begin the delicious donut making adventure.
Have I mentioned to you all how much I LOATHE frying?
I faced my fear of it for these. And I am glad I did.
So, I took a can of 10 biscuits and placed them on a plate.
Then I used some of my stored up Harry Potter magic (or my apple corer) and made them into these amazing little diddys.
Once I was finished I heated up my pan of hell…er I mean oil, and waited about 5 min for it to transform into the bubbling popping evil that I hate. Once its hot enough, turn down to med-high and begin.
And began watching them transform into little golden brown nuggets of amazingly goodness. Each side cooked for about 25-30 sec. They browned up quick.
Now, I was all set to snap some pictures of this process, but as I have stated, I HATE FRYING and the idea of being that close to a hot pan of oil with my face…nah, wasn’t gonna happen.
But these did…
After cooking, drain them on a wire rack and them dunk in glaze or in cinnamon sugar. YES!
And they were gone. Seriously, in about 7 minutes.
SO worth the burns.
