Nothing To Do With Sewing.....

....But Everything To Do With YUM!
Here's my recipe for keeping teenagers and their
friends at OUR house.

Some refrigerator biscuit dough.


A cup of confectioner's sugar, 1 TBS of cocoa
and a tiny bit of vanilla. Add milk, about 1 TBS
(until it is smooth and glossy, if it gets too
runny just add more sugar).

Heat oil to 370 degrees.

Cut holes in your biscuits. I'm so fancy, I use
an old vitamin lid.

Fry donuts (about 1 minute on each side).

Don't let your oil get over 350, and this works
out perfectly. If your oil gets too hot
your donuts will look golden brown on the
outside, but will still be doughy on the inside.

Dip them in that yummy frosting,

or shake them in a baggy full of

Sprinkle with cute stuff and watch the kids come running.

I don't know why, but the kids just love making these.
One day my funky hippy girl came home and four
of her guy friends were in the kitchen with me (aprons
and all) making donuts. They had showed up at
the door, right out of the blue, and said, "Bobbi....
can we make donuts?" They had their puppy dog eyes
going and pouty lips stuck out, so how could I
say no?

Have I mentioned that I love teenagers?
WELL.....I DO!


  1. Just so you know! I had not checked your blog before I posted my broccoli soup recipe this morning! You are really freaking me out! We think alike way too much!! I even had to double check the time of my post to prove to you put low and behold you got me by two hours!! CRAZY!!!

  2. These look so yummy! Never thought of using biscuit dough before...thanks so much for sharing! Definitely will try these.

  3. The great thing about food is it makes teenagers hang around. I don't mind feeding them because that way I always know where they are and who they are with. I am so glad to meet a mom who likes teenagers as much as I do. Don't get me wrong--I like babies, but teenagers are the most fun of all. Old enough to have some sense, but young enough to believe they can change the world. YEA!

  4. NO NO NO !!!

    Will have to try to make these one day on my day off.. My 2yr old doesn't need donuts, but mommy DOES !

  5. I just discovered your blog because I love crafts, but these doughnuts looked SO good! My stomach is growling!
