Homemade Donut Holes

Glazed Donut Holes
Cinnamon Sugar Donut Holes

Some time over the Christmas holiday, my sister reminded me that we used to make homemade donut holes when we were younger. She posted on Facebook that she was making them with her kiddos, we reminisced about it, and I decided to make them with my own kiddos soon after. Since them, we have made them a few times. They are VERY easy and probably not the slightest bit healthy. That is why they are a treat we only have once in a while.

Refrigerated biscuits (we just used the cheap pack of four rolls in a pack...we use two at a time
Vegetable oil
Powdered sugar/milk (if you prefer glazed)

Cut the biscuits into fourths. Roll into balls. My oldest daughter loves doing this part.

Drop into hot oil in a skillet or a Fry Daddy. We use the Fry Daddy so it is easy to get them in and out. When we made these in December/January, it was the first time we had even used our Fry Daddy in a few years I think! When they are golden brown, remove them. We stick them in a bowl to cool for a minute.

For cinnamon sugar holes: Pour some cinnamon and sugar into a paper lunch bag. Drop the donut holes in the bag, a few at a time, close, and shake away. Shake off the excess and then return to a bowl.

For glazed holes: Boil about a cup of milk, remove from heat. Add powdered sugar a tablespoon at a time. Whisk, continuing to add powdered sugar to desired consistency. Drop donut holes in a few at a time. Stir. Remove. Our glaze was very light.

That is it!

Eat and enjoy.

Happy cooking,
