This is a super simple crowd pleasing recipe & is SO SO inexpensive.

Start by heating some vegetable oil on the stove. You'll want it to be at least 2 inches deep.

Take out a can of store bought biscuits (regular, not jumbo) & lay the biscuits out on your cutting board one by one. Find something to cut the hole out with, the twist off top to a coke bottle works great, I keep one with my biscuit cutters just for this.

By the time you have your donut holes cut out your oil should be heated up.

Carefully drop the biscuits & the holes in the oil one by one. These cook super fast so be sure to watch them. I use tongs to flip them over, you'll know when they're done.

Have a paper plate ready to put them on for when they're done & immediately sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar. My mom always had 2 brown paper bags ready and would drop the donut into the bag & shake it with the sugar but I like to just sprinkle it on.

Voila...hot, fresh, CHEAP, homemade donuts. Your family & friends will thank you :-)

I used to make those for kids all the time. Their favorite was with chocolate frosting on top.

We make those at preschool and call them snowy donuts! They're so easy and super-yummy! We do the "shake in a paper bag" thing, too, which the little ones love. We made them at home, too, since they were so good at school. Highly recommend them!

My mother made these for us frequently as a treat when I was growing up. Thanks for the memory!

I grew up w/ these too. We used the chocolate frosting (powdered sugar, cocoa, milk, vanilla). I make them for my kids now and they demand it for breakfast when they have sleepovers. Their friends rave about my "doughnuts" at school. LOL!!! Little do they know it is just cheapo canned biscuits

Thanks for posting that. I haven't had those in so many years that I forgot they existed. Hot puffy dough with sugar, mmm mmm good.

I really want to make this, but I am not familiar with canned biscuits. Where are they usually in the grocery store, and are there brands for which I should specifically look? I might try this on Saturday or Sunday morning if I can get my hands on some of those biscuits!

Crisp, I think in my local grocery the biscuits are kept near cookie dough, there will be crescent rolls, cinnamon rolls, cookie dough & biscuits. If that's not the way your local store is organized ask an associate for help. I used cheap buttermilk biscuits that were 53 cents a can.
