Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

This morning I woke up and immediately thought, "I need to mail our Christmas cards!"

I have been putting off doing these cards because the thought of hand addressing all of them just reminds me of the wedding and how many invitations, thank you cards, shower cards, blah blah blah I had to send. I mean, obviously these are completely voluntary... but it just is a daunting task.

So to get in the spirit, I decided to start my day off being crafty. I made donuts!

I got the recipe from Little Bit Funky and knew I had to try them for a weekend breakfast.

They super easy to make.

First, fill your pan about 1/2 inch high with vegetable oil and heat on medium heat.

Meanwhile, lay out your biscuits and using a cookie cutter or something of the like, cut a hole in the center of the biscuits. [To make you feel better about yourself, I used the lid from a vodka bottle.]

Place the biscuits in the oil and fry until golden brown. Flip and do the same.

Melt butter in the microwave, approximately 2 tbsp, and combine cinnamon and sugar in a separate bowl. [I used splenda, so that's why my cinnamon sugar mixture looks suspiciously like sawdust. Splenda for baking is not fine, but it tastes the same to me and my diabetes thanks me.]

Once the biscuits *now donuts are done, place them on a paper towel lined plate to cool. [pretend there is a paper towel on this plate. I need to go grocery shopping...]

Once they are cool enough to touch, dip one side in the butter and let it drip off. Then place in the cinnamon sugar mixture and voila! 

Homemade donuts!

I also fried the little donuts holes, hehehe.

Happy eating!
