Mini Strawberry Donuts


Happy February!  This donut recipe is so easy and if you have never made donuts, you are missing out!  I make these donuts from canned biscuits and they are thick and cakey.  I would like to say this recipe is kid friendly but very hot oil isn't ideal for 2 year olds... Mack did help me dip the donuts and cut out the centers of the biscuits.  

Mini Strawberry Donuts

Ingredients:

Pillsburry Junior Biscuits*
Canola Oil
1/4 Cup Finely Chopped Strawberries 
1 Cup Powder Sugar
1 TBSP Water

*This recipe only makes 5 donuts... which was the perfect amount for us.  There was easily enough glaze for 5 more donuts if you wanted to get another can of biscuits.  


Directions:

1.  Begin to heat oil in a small sauce pan to 350 degrees.  You want about 1-2 inches of oil.  You could use a larger sauce pan to cook more donuts at once.  Punch a hole in the center of your biscuits with a circular object.  I used the insert from our garlic press {see picture below}.  





2.  Using a slotted spoon carefully drop donuts into the oil.  You want to cook the donuts for 20 - 30 seconds on each side.  Place cooked donuts on a paper towel to absorb any extra oil.  


3.  To make the glaze; whisk together the strawberries, powder sugar, and water.  Dip the completely cooled donuts in the glaze.  I poured additional glaze over the donuts because who doesn't want more glaze?

  


 Soooo yummy!  Mack kept saying mo' donutsssss.  And we didn't have anymore because his Momma has a sweet tooth. #andispregnant  With the donut holes I decided to dip them in some cinnamon and sugar right out of the oil.  If I am being completely honest those are my favorite part of donuts.  I wish I had about 40 more of those right now....  


Alright y'all, I am so stinking' excited because the hubs and I are headed out for a surprise anniversary trip TODAY!  I don't know if it is my hormones or Mack being two, but this Momma could use a couple days off.  #canIgetanAmen ?!?!
