Pre heat oil to 325- 350. Do not want it overly hot. Just enough to start frying but not to fast.
Open biscuits and flatten slightly to thin out. I usually flatten to about half the thickness they were to start.
Cut each biscuit into 4 quarters.
You can also flatten and cut hole in center and cook the same way. It makes 8 donuts and 8 holes.
When oil is heated, test with corner of biscuit to see if it starts to fry. If not, let oil heat a little longer or raise temperature just slightly.
Watching carefully, flip biscuits over when golden brown and let other side cook. Usually just takes a minute or so.
When cooked through, drain on paper towel. Roll in powdered sugar while hot, cinnamon sugar mix, or glaze. Best served warm.
GLAZE FOR DONUTS:
1/2 -1 CUP POWDERED SUGAR
2 TEASPOONS MILK
MIX ALL TOGETHER UNTIL SMOOTH AND LUMP FREE. IF MIXTURE IS DRY, JUST ADD MORE MILK A LITTLE AT A TIME. IF YOU ADD TO MUCH AND ITS VERY RUNNY, ADD MORE SUGAR. IT SHOULD BE THICK ENOUGH TO COAT WELL, BUT THIN ENOUGH TO DRIZZLE OR DIP.
DIP OR DRIZZLE GLAZE OVER HOT DONUTS.
