Donuts from Biscuits ????

Postby OldUsedParts » Thu Apr 13, 2017 7:38 am

When my Sons were youngins at home we would often fix these on Saturday Mornings for them. They would eat them 3 feet from the TV, watching cartoons and still in their Jammies. However, this is not advisable to feed these to kiddos during the school week, especially if they are fixin to get on a school bus or asked to sit in a desk and be still and quite. :laughing7: :D :lol:

It is pretty simple and darned cheap, which was very important back in the Kid raising "daze". Open a can of biscuits (Okie Sawbones called them "thump" biscuits), shape, fry in hot oil, drain on paper towel and dip into or drizzle with a milk and powdered sugar dredge. The only "tricky" thing to these is frying them enuff to cook the dough but not turning them the color of an 8 ball with a hole in the middle. Just to be safe I always over cook but the crunchyness on the outside works just fine.

I'm not much on sweets, especially for breakfast but the War Dept suggested I do some so I done did'em. :laughing7:

My mother would fix these things some 60 years ago when I was a kid. She'd just shake them in a bag of powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar while still hot and somewhat greasy

She had one of those old style biscuit cutters with the removable center cutter for donuts.

I remember them well - - - I was using a 3/4" deep socket to cut the hole until the War Dept caught me so now I just knead and pull the shape between my thumb and forefinger :D
