I Heart Donuts

This post was written by Robina, at Motherly Loving, and submitted for publication here at Catholic Cuisine. Thank you Robina, and congratulations on your precious new little one!

Here is a yummy Valentine's Day tradition of ours. Yummy, enjoy.


Heart Donuts

biscuit dough - ready to use or from scratch
small heart-shaped cookie cutter or a circle of any kind for traditional round shape
1/4 - 1/2 cup cooking oil - vegetable or canola
tongs
paper towels
cinnamon and sugar mix and/or powdered sugar

Open the biscuit can and spread all the rolls out. Then using your cutter, press out a donut hole right in the middle.


Then get your pan on medium heat with 1/4 - 1/2 cup oil. Depending on how many you make, you will need more oil. You want enough oil to cover half of the donut when cooking. Place 3-4 doughy donuts into the pan and leave until the bottom is golden brown (2-3 minutes). Don't do anything else but watch these, as they cook fast and don't want them to burn. Then turn them over and cook another minute or so.


Using tongs, place the cooked donut on paper towels to drain and cool slightly. Then get your pan on medium heat with 1/4 - 1/2 cup oil. Depending on how many you make, you will need more oil. You want enough oil to cover half of the donut when cooking. Now place the donuts on a plate and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar or powdered sugar too. Or let cool slightly and cover with chocolate icing and Valentine's sprinkles.

Enjoy.
