Dreamin' of Donuts

Later today, I am meeting a fellow writer friend for lunch at Smokey Bones. If you are not familiar, Smokey Bones is a chain that features lots of barbecue. I love their brisket, yet I am conptemplating a salad.

Why is that? Glad you asked. No, I an not on a diet. Yes, I still eat meat. I want a salad so that I can save room to have an order donuts for dessert. You see, Smokey Bones has these amazing donuts. They come to your table hot, in a brown paper bag. The cake donuts are generously coated in cinnamon and sugar. If that is not enough, you also get a strawberry dipping sauce.

For days I have been dreaming of these donuts with a cup of coffee! Sometimes when I crave hot donuts at home, I do the recipe that follows. I learned it in middle school Home-Ec, the place where I was taught life's most practical knowledge.

Canned Biscuit Donuts

Poke holes in indidual canned biscuits using a soda bottle top, or something of similar size. Fry in hot oil that has been heated in a large skillet or deep fryer. When golden brown, remove donuts from oil. You can shake them in powdered sugar, cinnamon and sugar; or frost them with chocolate or vanilla icing. Sprinkles are also fun!

Mmmmm.... Some other people and I were recently drooling over the idea of fresh, hot Krispy Kreme donuts. Nothing better than a donut FRESH. These biscuit donuts sound yuck, but I've had them, and they are delicious! Thanks for reminding me. :)

Fried biscuit dough doesn't sound good. It's just one of those things you have to try to believe.Canned biscuits also make good cinnamon twists. Stretch them into long ropes. Brush with melted butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Twist and bake.
