one of my favorite treats....Mom made them in the 50's....still love them today..

Fried Donuts Recipe Ingredients: Grands Jr. Refrigerated Biscuits, buttermilk, 8 count 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar, in a bowl vegetable oil for frying Directions: Heat the oil at medium heat until it gets very hot. Open the can of biscuits and separate them out on a plate. (Optional: use a round cookie cutter to cut out center.) Fry biscuits in batches about 2-3 minutes per side until golden brown. Remove with slotted spoon and allow to sit on paper towels to drain for about a minute or two. Place one at a time into bowl with sugar using spoon, cover the donut with sugar. Repeat steps 3, 4 & 5 until finished. Serve immediately. Tips: If you want more donuts and/or would like them not as thick, you can separate each biscuit (there are layered) in half. Some restaurants even cut them in half so they are half circles or even half moons. I used a sauce pan to fry these up. I think I had about 1 1/2 to 2 cups of vegetable oil (about a 2 inch layer) and I was able to fry about 2 to 3 donuts at once.

Same ,here, no access.

We have made these since I was a little girl, but we used Powered sugar and Cinnamon and sugar, and any can of biscuits work great just what ever you prefer! ENJOY!
