Recipe - Pillsbury Grands Donuts!

Yes, You read that right. Pillsbury Grands Donuts!
There was a sale awhile back on Grands so I picked up a few. Eight to be exact.....
Anyways onto the donuts!
I used a wide mouth bottle to make the holes then with about and inch or so of heated up peanut oil I used some tongs and placed the "donuts" in the hot oil. Less then 2 minutes later or until golden brown you turn them over and fry up the other side. Once down put them on some paper towels.

For the vanilla icing I simply added 1 cup powered sugar, 2 tablespoons milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla. I also wanted chocolate icing so I did another bowl that consisted of 1 cup powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons milk and 1/4 cup cocoa powder. I'm sure any donut icing recipe you have or find will work wonders too!

They turned out very fluffy and light. Not biscuity or dense like I expected. I have made donuts from scratch before, but after whipping up these I don't think I'm ever looking back again! These seriously took less then 20 minutes to make. The longest part was waiting for the oil to heat up! I added some orange food coloring to the vanilla icing though you can't see it with the color of the donuts. My 6 year old and I were going for a Halloween look. I also thought I had some orange and black sprinkles from cookies last time but sadly I did not. We improvised with green and yellow butterfly's from Easter! Hey, it works and the kids don't care :)

How do you like my wood?

I've been rather busy lately out in my garage. Which is now starting to get cold! It seems like my Arizona temperature went from 95 for 47 in a matter of days. Oh wait it did! Brrr!!
Here is just a quick share of what I've been up too!
