Donut Holes!


Donut holes: simple and spherical little morsels that every simple cook ought to make at least once. I was so excited when I had found out that we would make them in cooking club one week, so I decided to take a couple of pictures. The little donuts turned out to be pretty tasty, and I thought that I might share our success with them to the world. The process is pretty simple. Here is a list of things needed to create a batch:
* 1 canister of Pillsbury biscuit dough
* vegetable oil
* crock pot
* cooling rack
* large spoon that can strain liquids
*optional: granulated sugar, cinnamon powder, cocoa powder, any fruit jelly. These would be used for the toppings.
1. Start by preheating the crock pot to 350 degrees and fill the basin with vegetable oil: enough so that the donuts can fry in it later.
2.Open up the canister of biscuit dough. It should already be divided into sections. Divide each section into four equal parts and roll into balls.
3. Once the oil is hot in the crock pot, drop in the balls of dough and begin to rotate them in the oil so that they are cooked on all sides. Once they are golden brown, pick them up with the large spoon and let the oil drain out
4. Let the donut cool on the cooking rack, but still let it retain some heat so that toppings will stick to them.
For a chocolate glazed donut, mix granulated sugar with cocoa power in a small bowl and roll the donut hole in the mixture until it is completely coated. The rough surface of the coating will start to melt and become more of a glaze
For a cinnamon donut, mix granulated sugar with cinnamon powder and repeat steps above.
For a plain glazed donut, simply roll the donut hole in granulated sugar.
For a jelly donut, dip the donut into any fruit jelly of choice.

Donuts leave you with such a clear slate, so you can basically dress them up any way that is most desired. Be creative with your batch of donuts!
