Lily actually tore her biscuit into pieces, so I helped her roll them into balls and......TADA! donut holes. =)
While we were making the holes in the dough, I heated oil in a big frying pan. You want the oil hot, but not too hot or the outsides will burn and the insides will be doughy. After a few minutes when the bottoms are brown, turn the donuts over and cook the other side for a few minutes. (I know...great instructions, but really, I have no measurements or time frames for this stuff! I'm going from memory here.)
After they are done, you put sugar and cinnamon on them. My mom actually only used sugar, but my friend Stephanie said her mom did this and she used cinnamon also, so that's what we tried. I'm sure you could probably use whatever you wanted. My mom is smarter and she always put them in a paper sack filled with sugar, but I thought the kids would have more fun if they saw the donuts being coated, so I let them use a plate.....next time we are using a bag. =)
The bag is also better because you are supposed to cover the donuts when they are hot so more sugar stays on but I had to wait until they were cooled off a little, so their fingers didn't get burnt. It still worked though and the kids thought they were great!! Zach said, "These are SO good!" and Riley said, "I can't believe how delicious these are!" (That cracked me up because I thought, you didn't think they were going to be good?? ha ha ha!)
Zach even thought they were "finger licking good!"
