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 :)
