Easy Homemade Donuts:
1 or 2 cans of store bought canned biscuits
Canola oil
Powdered sugar
Flatten down each single biscuit dough slightly, by hand or with rolling pin to about a 2-3 inch circle and use a 2 liter bottle cap, milk cap, or a very small round cookie cutter to cut out a small hole from the middle section of each one.  If you are using a deep fryer, pre-heat oil to 325F or in a medium sized saucepan, pre-heat Canola oil to the same 325F and to test oil, use a thermometer or carefully drop some dough into the oil and if it starts sizzling or bubbling and frying the dough, then it is ready. Caution: Oil will be extremely hot, so do be careful.  When oil is ready, carefully drop as many as you can in the hot oil with tongs, or a fork and you may want to wear gloves for extra safety. Donuts are practically done as soon as they hit the oil.  Let each one fry to a lightly golden brown on both sides.  Then transfer donuts to a plate lined with paper towels.  Drain off excess oil and sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Makes a Great Snack with Coffee! 
Optional: You can save the center sections of the dough that you cut out from the biscuits and make doughnut balls. These make a wonderful snack too! Enjoy!
