a dunkin donuts recently opened down the road from us. and every time we drive by the girls always ask if we can buy some dounts. well in all honesty they yell from the back seat at the top of their lungs, "Donuts! we want donuts!!!" so polite, i know!
but i dont blame them! i mean, who doesnt love a good donut every now and then? but they cost a pretty penny and are packed with plenty of calories.
so i couldnt help but make these for the family when i came across this recipe using ready to use biscuit dough,
1 glazed donut is 220 calories while
1 biscuit (equal to 1 donut and 1 donut ball)
is 50 calories.
these really came together incredibly fast! and how clever of them to use a medicine cup to cut the middle out, it worked out great!
we lightly (ahem) dusted our donuts with powdered sugar
and some with cinnamon and sugar.
but how did we rate them?
thumbs up by both girls, and daddy. they loved them! i couldnt get them off the stove fast enough. i will defiantly be making these again.
it was the perfect "special saturday morning breakfast".
