So at a church activity once, Dillon got the idea of how to make these donuts. I am naming them Dillon’s Donuts because a) this was his idea, b) it alliterates and c) if I pretend that he has ownership over them, I can get him to make them for me instead of having to do it myself.
You take some refrigerated biscuit dough–I think we did Pillsbury Grands–and you form it into a shape of a donut, flattening it and making a hole in the center. Deep fry. Cover in icing.
It’s quite simple. I enjoyed dunking the donuts into icing after they had cooled a bit. This was my icing recipe:
- 2 oz cream cheese
- 7 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
I creamed the cheese and butter, added in the vanilla, and mixed in the milk and sugar. I played with the milk and sugar a bit until it was the right consistency.
I love donuts. And you feel slightly better about yourself eating these donuts because they’re made from biscuit dough, and biscuits are good for you, right? So you can ignore the fact that you just covered it up in a lot of fat and sugar.
