the best thing you'll ever put in your mouth

GUYS. Yesterday for breakfast handsome and I made our own cinnamon sugar donuts. I didn't even think about taking pictures until they were done, so I'm sorry that I suck. But they're super simple and amazing, so I had to share!
donut, homemade, easy, recipe, Pillsbury, biscuit, cinnamon sugar
Here's what you need...it's this simple:
pillsbury biscuits
Heat up some canola oil in a skillet/pan/whatever
Take the biscuits out of the container (which I hate doing because the 'pop' always scares me)
Flatten them out 
Cut a hole from the center
Mix cinnamon and sugar in a bowl
Fry the dough pieces until they're golden brown
Transfer directly into cinnamon sugar mix and coat the whole darn thing with that amazingness.

Sorry for the awful recipe-giving, but it's pretty fool proof, and they're literally so good. I'm spending today soaking up my time with Handsome (I leave tomorrow...boo).  But I definitely recommend you try them. I also updated my design services so check that out! Happy Sunday!

  16. I'm all about the simple recipes & want to try this one out. I HATE the freaking pop noise. I usually end up dropping the dough on the floor because it scares me so much, even though I know it is coming. Haha...I always try to make someone else open it for me.
