I love the Fair! Most of all I love fair food. If you cannot make it to the fair this year then do not be sad! Make these bite size yummies in your own kitchen! They are simple and I promise will make you feel like you are at the Fair without all of the farm smells.
Midway Donut Holes
2 cans refrigerated biscuits, cut into 1/4ths
Peanut or canola oil
Cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar, chocolate syrup
In a large dutch oven filled 1/3 with canola or peanut oil bring to 375 degrees. Open the refrigerated biscuits and cut into fourths. Roll each biscuit piece to make a ball and carefully drop into the hot oil. Use a long wooden skewer to flip over the donut holes till they are browned on both sides. Remove the donut holes from the hot oil and place on a paper towel lined baking sheet. Using tongs, put donut holes into a paper sack and sprinkle with powdered or cinnamon sugar. Seal the top and shake to coat. Serve warm in paper sacks!
