Sweet Treats: Ant's Donuts

*Note: I start a lot of posts and don't finish them/don't post them. This was one of them. I had to share because he just looks so darn cute baking away in our kitchen : ) *

Anyone who knows Anthony knows that he looovveesss sweets.

He has a particularly great affinity for donuts.
A few weeks ago, he wanted to make me donuts, just like his Aunt Bobbie taught him.

Using a can of Pillsbury refrigerated biscuits, he separated each of the pre-cut biscuit circles, then using a (hopefully washed out) beer bottle, cut out holes from the centers.

He removed and saved the centers from the bottle with a toothpick
(hello donut holes!)

told him he'd regret this... 
While the oil was heating on the stove, he set out his "toppings"- powdered sugar in one bowl, and a cinnamon sugar mixture in another, and mixed up his glaze using powdered sugar and a splash of half and half.

Once the oil was good and hot, he fried them up til both sides were a nice golden brown.

Since Ant was busying frying up the dough, it was my job to dress them in various sugary toppings and pop them in the oven to stay warm while the rest were cooking. (not the glazed, we just topped those last so the glaze wouldn't melt off in the oven)


Now that I know he can cook,
there may be some different expectations at home... : )


I love comments! Leave me a note!
