One of our favorite camping breakfasts is donuts made from Grands biscuits--so fast, easy, and YUMMY!  When I was thinking of what I wanted to do for our Valentine's Day breakfast, I knew it was the perfect thing...with one tiny change...adding hearts, of course! I LOVE them--and I know my kids are going to go crazy over them!  Seriously--how cute!!

Easy Heart Donuts

These are SO incredibly easy AND delicious, you won't believe it!

{ingredients & supplies}

-Grand Biscuits, Flaky Layers

-heart cookie cutter (mine was about 2.5 inches)

-cinnamon & sugar

-powdered sugar

-tongs

-oil

-skillet

{directions}

1.  Pop open the can, and lay out your biscuits on a piece of wax paper.  One-by-one, use the cookie cutter to remove the center of the biscuit.  Place both pieces back on the wax paper, and repeat until all of them are cut out.

2.  Add oil to your skillet--I usually do about an inch or so. You don't need a lot!  Let it heat up to about 350 degrees.  Oil can be tricky--if it's too hot, the outside will burn or get brown quickly, while the inside will be dough-y.  If it's not hot enough, the dough will soak up too much oil and be super greasy.  Once it's at 350 degrees, I would do a test run--just to make sure your oil is set--and before you put all your dough in!

3.  Add your dough hearts to the oil, and let one side turn golden brown before using tongs to turn them over to the other side.

4.  As soon as each heart is golden brown on each side, remove from the skillet and immediately place in either powdered sugar or cinnamon & sugar.  I prepped bowls ahead of time, so I just add to plop it in and use a spoon to make sure it was covered.

Place on a plate covered with a paper towel, and let rest until ready to eat!  I don't think you'll have to wait long...these will be gobbled up fast!

  1. yum! question, when you are camping, do you do them over the fire or is it too hard to get the oil right? i’m a bit wary of doing hot oil in my camper… :)

  2. Want to try something even more decadent..almost like French Pastry..Use Crescent Rolls. We have found Pillsbury makes the best..
