(Sort Of) Homemade Doughnut Holes

I came across a recipe over at Not So Homemade for doughnut holes and had to try it. I documented the process in pictures to share here today.

There are three ingredients. Seriously. You just need canned biscuit dough (any brand--I used Pillsbury Grands Homestyle Buttermilk), vegetable oil and powdered sugar. That's it!

To make, cut the biscuits into quarters. At this point, you can leave them as chunky wedges or roll them into balls.

While you're cutting up the biscuits, put a couple inches of vegetable oil into a sauce pan and heat on medium. (You can test the oil to see if it's hot enough by wetting your fingers and flicking a drop of water into the oil. If it sizzles, it's ready!)

Using a slotted spoon, gently place around 8-10 holes or wedges into the oil, being careful not to splatter yourself! Don't overcrowd the pan; the dough will at least double in size as it cooks. (If you're impatient and want them done quicker, you can use a larger pan. ;D)

Using the spoon, gently turn the dough balls until golden brown on all sides.

Since one can of biscuits makes approximately 30 doughnut holes, you'll need to prepare them in batches. Drain each batch on a plate lined with paper towels. Continue until they are all done and drained.

Place about 3/4 cup of powdered sugar in a lidded plastic container. After draining, place about 5 doughnut holes in the container, snap on the lid and shake to coat with powdered sugar. Continue in batches until all the holes are sugared.

You're done! Serve 'em up and enjoy! :D

Spring is officially here. It's not my favorite season--the hot weather, the pollen, the bugs, the pollen, did I mention the whole world is YELLOW? Anyway.

Spring can be beautiful, and like all things, I want to document the beauty I see in the world through scrapbooking.

I have a special Spring layout up today on the Scrap n' Art Blog, using some really beautiful chipboard pieces from Imaginarium Designs!!

Here's a sneak peek:

So head on over to see the full layout and read all the details! Happy Spring!

Stylish Blogger Award

My sweet friend and design teammate, Amy, has given me the Stylish Blogger Award! What an awesome surprise! Thanks, Amy! For me to accept this award, I must list 8 things about myself, as well as pass this award on to 8 other stylish bloggers. Yay!

Here we go!

1. I love to sing! It is ingrained in my soul, it is part of who I am and it always will be. It is like breathing--I need to do it to survive!!

2. I have psoriasis, which is an autoimmune disease that manifests symptoms on my skin. It is painful, debilitating and ugly.

3. I am completely, hopelessly addicted to Facebook. And I am not ashamed.

4. I do not want children.

5. I love, love, love animals, and dream of having a huge amount of land someday and the means to rescue dogs, cats, and whatever creature needs my help!

6. I want the world to be quieter. Too much noise, y'all!

7. I knew I would marry my husband the night I met him. I was 16.

8. I am constantly straightening and smoothing the sheets on the bed. If the sheets are not pulled and tucked tightly and smoothly, I cannot and will not sleep in that mess. :D I fix it a few times a night. And then again in the morning. And sometimes during the day if I pass through and see it all wonky.

Now, I pass this award on to:

Brian @ Brian's Notebook
Ginger @ Ginger's Junket
Margie @ Meanderings of Margie
Julie @ Traditionally Retro
Nina @ Having An Art-A-Tack
Trisha @ Trishalicious
