Cinnamon Roll Doughnuts

When I woke up yesterday I put on my sneakers and walked outside for a run...


and it was raining and cold... Then I thought to myself:

 I will make DOUGHNUTS! 

I can be so bad sometimes.  I made doughnuts from biscuits in the spring and they turned out awesome {here, here}.  I was on my Target run this week and the biscuit section stopped me dead in my tracks.  Happens all the time!  I was thinking about making doughnuts again and then I thought...why don't I try to use cinnamon rolls?  




Cinnamon Roll Doughnuts

Ingredients:

Refrigerated Cinnamon Rolls
Canola Oil

Directions:

1.   Begin to heat the oil in a large dutch oven to 350 degrees {you could use a smaller pan but it will just take longer}.  You want about 1-2 inches of oil.  Punch a whole in the middle of the biscuits with a circular object. {I used our garlic press} 

2.  Carefully drop dough in the oil.  Allow dough to cook about for about 30 seconds on each side.  You want them to be a nice golden brown.  If you're new to frying, you can test one out first to make sure you are cooking it long enough. 

3.  Use a slotted spatula to remove the doughnuts from the oil, then place on wire rack.  



4.  I heated the icing in the microwave for about 5-10 seconds to make it more pourable.  You might want to put the wire rack on a metal cookie sheet so can re-use the icing that drips off.  
  

Now I was pretty impressed with how these doughnuts turned out.  I recommend eating them right away!  The longer you wait the more they tasted just like a normal cinnamon roll {which is not necessarily a bad thing}!
