Donut Day

I LOVE cooking with my kids and teaching them kitchen basics. My family always had me helping in the kitchen as a kid and we all still gather there when together now. It feels good to pass on traditions. Today we made "semi-homemade" donuts. Here is our morning in the kitchen making donuts.

First we took refridgerated biscuits, mashed em down and used a glass to cut...


Next, we fried them in canola oil...


Mixed together 1C powdered sugar, 1/4C milk and 1 tsp vanilla for icing...


And a bag of powdered sugar for the donut holes...


Brush donuts with glaze twice...











Look how yummy they look! Oh and they tasted yummy too!

What are some of your favorite "semi-homemade" recipes?

That looks like a LOT of fun!! I have made some real homemade donuts a few weeks ago (since we are gluten free we have to make from scratch). My kids had never had a donut before so we had a lot of fun making them.

Your powdered one looks good!!! I will have to make those next time.
