Never the less, I made doughnuts for the men. Proof positive I am just a bit off- I am not really wanting to eat them. Kateena made these for the kids a few weeks ago and they were DEE LISH!! So I re created them myself, manlet is completely sticky right now and I am certain the hubs will enjoy them as well. This may be one of those well known things to do, but I was flabbergasted when I saw Kateena do it.
Easy PEASY to do. Fill a pan with about and inch of cooking oil and heat over medium heat. Take a can of biscuits, lay them out and cut holes out of each one. I could not find a small enough cookie cutter ( shocking as there are more than 100 in this house) so I improvised and used the wrong end of my baster....that's right, it's not just for turkeys anymore. ooohhhhh turkey. yum.
When I was finished cutting the holes, I took a small bit of dough and tossed it into pan to test the oil temp. When it starts to sizzle you are good to go.
Carefully place ( I used my hands, but you could use a spatula or other utensil if you are more cautious) each doughnut and or whole into the oil. Allow to cook in oil for about 45 -60 seconds, you want to make sure the dough cooks all the way thru. Flip to cook other side using a bamboo skewer.
When the dough is cooked thru, remove from the oil and place on a paper toweled plate to drain off excess oil.
Glaze? Too easy! Milk, powdered sugar, and a teaspoon and a half of vanilla. Mix till you have the thickened consistency you would like and BATHE, yea I said it BATHE the doughnuts in it.
It's a good thing we are joining another gym- more on that later- because we are going to need it with these hanging around.
