Sugar Donuts from Canned Biscuits

Since I was young, my mother made these for us and when I married, my daughters always wanted these also. Now my grandchildren look forward to making them, helping to cut the holes and dipping them in the sugar. It is delicious served warm.

I made these this morning~ so good! They are best when hot. I coated the holes in cinnamon & sugar, but made a glaze for the donuts. They are SO easy, took me 15 minutes total!

Made these as a kid and make now with my daughters. I make a chocolate glaze also to dip them in.
