(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
