Super-Duper Easy Doughnuts

I am ecstatic to share this with you...
In fact, soooo excited I HAD to go ahead
and take pictures of them tonight!!
So, yes I used the flash {I know, that's a no - no!!}

I got brave tonight.
Researched a recipe...
warmed up my deep fryer...
and made zeppole dough.

After about 3 batches, I was ready to throw in the towel!!

But, then I had an idea!!
** ding, ding, ding **
And, I bet you have a can in your fridge right now!!!
Yes, I'm talking about Pilsbury Cinnamon Buns!

This is so ridiculously easy, I'm kicking myself for not thinking about this before now!


1 can of Refrigerated Cinnamon Buns
Oil for frying
1/2 cup Sugar
2 tablespoons Cinnamon 

Preheat oil to 350 degrees. While that's heating, place the sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and mix together. Set aside. Now, pop open the can of dough and cut each round into two or four. {depending on how big you want your doughnuts - remember, they will double in size} With your hands, form each piece into a circle and carefully place the dough into the grease - one at a time. Cook on each side for about 3-4 minutes until golden brown. 

With a slotted spoon, removed done doughnuts and immediately place in cinnamon-sugar. Roll it around until completely coated.

And, TAAAAH DAAAAAAH!!!


Hot, chewy, fried doughnuts straight from YOUR kitchen! 

**Yummy tip: Don't throw out the frosting from your cinnamon bun can - it makes a great dipping sauce for your doughnuts!!**

These are so good!! You and your family will love 'em!

Please have a wonderful holiday weekend! We are going to enjoy lots of relaxing family time ... that, and doughnuts!  ;)
