First, heat some vegetable oil in a pot, you only need about an inch or so of oil. A little tip to check if it's hot yet... wet your fingers then flick the oil. If it pops when the water hits it, it's hot enough.
Get a can of buttermilk biscuits. This is one of those recipes where it's perfectly fine to go generic :)
Cut each biscuit into quarters. One can will get you 40 donut holes.
Also, get a container with a lid and add some powdered sugar.
When the oil is hot enough, drop the biscuit pieces in one at a time in the oil. They may sink to the bottom but will quickly rise to the top.
They will expand so be sure not to overfill the pan.
Once they start to brown on the underside, flip them. Be careful about this. At first, they won't brown as fast but as the oil gets hotter they cook faster.
Once they are browned on both sides, remove them to a paper towel to drain.
Remember that powdered sugar? Place the hot donut holes in there, cover, and shake until coated.
And there you have it! Not-so-homemade donut holes :)
Mmmmm... so YUMMY! A BIG hit with my family and my mom would cook MASSIVE batches for Sunday School and there's NEVER anything left!
You could vary it up too! Cut centers out of the biscuits and you have regular donuts and donut holes :)
