Homemade Donuts...yummm!

We love Krispy Kreme on Sunday morning when we all go and get hot donuts. But let's be honest...I'd love hot donuts every day of the week. This morning we attempted our own version. While they weren't Krispy Kreme, they were pretty darn good! The best part is that they were simple and something Emma and I could make together pretty quickly.  I wish I'd gotten a better picture, but they didn't last long enough.

Here's what you need:

1 can original Pillsbury biscuits
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Hot water
Vegetable oil

Here's what you do:

1.  Heat vegetable oil in a deep skillet or fryer to 375 degrees. Our oil was about an inch and a half deep. It worked really well. 
2.  Prepare your glaze by mixing the powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Add hot water by the tablespoon until it reaches a desired consistency. 
3.  Lay paper towels on a plate. This is where you'll put the donuts to drain the oil. 
4. Cut holes in the middle of each biscuit. We just used a spoon for this. Roll the remaining dough into balls for donut holes. 
5.  Drop donuts and holes into hot oil. We were able to put in four at a time. Fry on each side until golden. No more than a minute on each side. 
6.  Remove your donuts with tongs or a slotted spoon and lay on paper towels. 
7.  While they're hot, dip donuts in the glaze coating both sides. 
8.  Serve warm and enjoy!

These were super easy and delicious! I did find they weren't as good once they cooled so if you want to eat them later, I would heat them for a few seconds in the microwave. 

These are going to make a perfect replacement until we make it to Krispy Kreme again!
