Shake, Shake, Shake: Shake Your Donut

Okay, now that I've got KC and The Sunshine Band playing in my head now, here we go...
For a little effort and not much money, You Too Can Have a Fake Yet Tasty Donut in Minutes!

First assemble everything needed:  Tube of Refrigerated Biscuits, opened and a small amount of your preferred filling.  Flip top back over the filling and squeeze the edges tightly closed.  I made 8 donuts and 9 holes (unfilled).   Put cinnamon sugar in a brown paper bag.  Have dish ready to put donuts into.

Heat your oil (on electric setting from Lo to 9, Setting 3 was hot enough for me.  I tested the temp by looking at how free flowing the oil was and putting in 1 of the donut holes.  Then I added the rest, cooked on first side for about 2 minutes, flipped them and cooked about 1 minute more.

Carefully put donuts in brown paper bag as they are done cooking.  Shake, shake, shake to cover with cinnamon sugar.  They're going to be super hot, be careful and then put them in your bowl. Step back and enjoy the aroma and the view.  Resist the urge to eat immediately, they are hot. Make your tea and then indulge.

This recipe floats all over the internet, and I finally made these.  I almost never deepfry any foods, so I just used my regular pan and a bit of oil.  If I make these again, next time the filling will be peanut butter and chocolate chips; might make them with bread dough as twisties with either powdered sugar or the same cinnamon sugar.    These work out to be about 10 cents each not counting oil, energy, etc.  Must dance now to work off the donuts, see ya...
