Dunkin' Ain't Got Nothing On Dis Donut Shoppe!

Okay Okay, I know the title is a little much, but I thought it was kind of funny and would make you wonder what the heck I'm referring too! I am a huge "doughy" person! I love cookies, cake, danishes, muffins, cupcakes, scones, doughnuts, cinnamon rolls and the list could go on and on! It is most definitely a curse and I wish almost daily that I didn't have such a sweet tooth!

We are pretty big on eating breakfast on the weekends! The Hubby is a mean breakfast chef! He can whip up eggs and omelets, bacon {of course}, pancakes, waffles pretty much any and all things related to breakfast! I usually let him have full reign in the kitchen on the weekend mornings, however if I have a new idea {ahem... thanks Pinterest} that I want to try, I kick him out and get to cooking! 

I've tried one really EASY recipe from Pinterest that consisted of putting Pillsbury cinnamon rolls in your waffle maker! They cooked crazy fast and were yummy! Yesterday, I figured I'd put another Pillsbury product to the test and make donuts and I will be the first to tell you that these donuts did not disappoint! The Hubby was even impressed! I'm quite certain we've found a new breakfast favorite! 

What you will need: 

1 can of homestyle or buttermilk biscuits {I used Pillsbury Grands Buttermilk biscuits}
1 small cookie cutter or small circular item you can use to make a hole in the dough
Vegetable Oil
4 tbls melted butter


Fill frying pan about 1/2 an inch with Vegetable Oil
Heat oil on Medium
While oil is heating open biscuits
Flatten out each biscuit and use the cookie cutter or small circular item to make the donut hole {I actually used a small heart shaped cookie cutter in honor of Valentine's Day}
Mix sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl or dish {I used a tupperware container}
Place flattened biscuit and holes into the pan
Flip them with tongs when they start to brown
Once the second side has lightly browned place on a paper towel lined plate
Lightly brush donuts with melted butter
Toss donut in the sugar and cinnamon until fully coated
Place and a cute serving dish and enjoy!

Frying up some goodness! 

All sorts of scrumptiousness! 

Valentine donuts on a Valentine serving dish for my sweetie of a Valentine!

It really is as simple as that!! From start to finish it may have taken all of fifteen minutes! I have no doubt that you readers out there with kids will have a new breakfast winner on your hands! Considering that my hubby has an appetite for kids foods, he would definitely agree that your wee ones will LOVE this treat! And for those of you with a pastry sweet tooth like me, well then these will most definitely be winner for you too! Next time I hope to experiment with maple icing and maybe even sprinkles!

Happy Monday my darlings!!!! Wishing you all a fabulous start to your week!!! XoXo!
