As a small confession, I also have an obsession (well....many, but we can discuss that over another blog post, haha) Pinterest. Pinterest is a wonderful place to find inspiration for all sorts of things - from decorating to cooking to crafts to curriculum to....just about everything! There are so many awesome things about it I won't name them all here.
Here is one that I found and decided I just had to try - homemade donuts. We love donuts (probably because my husband is from Quincy, Massachusetts: home of the original Dunkin Donuts) so this seemed like an economical recipe to try.
It just takes a can of refrigerated biscuits (any except flaky layers), oil, Cinnamon, sugar, and something to make a hole in the middle - preferably between 1-2 inches. I used a heart shaped cookie cutter - see how cute they came out?!
You can see the ones on the left I tried to just puncture a hole in the middle with my finger, but it didn't work. The ones on the right I used the heart shaped cookie cutter - CUTE!
When they are really puffy and you can see the light brown starting to creep up the sides,
flip them over.
"So," you ask, "What did you do with the part you cut out?"
I made heart shaped munchkins of course!
After they are set on a rack and have cooled off a bit, place them in a large Ziploc bag (or brown bag) with some of the cinnamon and sugar. Shake really good to coat all sides of this scrumptious treat and serve! It is so good they'll ask you for more ;)
