Donut Holes:
This is a simple delicious recipe and it tastes like a funnel cake!
Take biscuit dough out of the can. Pinch off a small piece of dough and roll into a ball to make donut hole. Do this with the rest of the can. Note, the donuts do expand in the grease, so don’t make them too big! Fill your pot with at least 2 inches of oil. Heat oil until it bubbles when you drop the dough in. Dough will cook quickly so flip dough over as you see it crisping. When your dough is golden brown take out immediately. Have your paper bag with powder sugar ready to go by the oil. As soon as your donuts are taken out of the oil, drop them into the bag and shake. Voila! Beautiful donut holes!

    Please don't let the grease bubble! Just tried this a few hours ago and now I have to wipe down my walls and ceilings and repaint because they are black. I just glad my house didn't burn down like I thought it was going to. The grease caught on fire because it got too hot! Before you make these look up the correct temperature for the grease! Please!
