The smell of pastry is in the air. Today is national doughnut day. In my heart everyday is doughnut day.  I'll be sure to stop by my favorite local doughnut shop and get JUST ONE!!  It's difficult for me to say just one doughnut. If you would like to attempt to make your own tasty doughnut just follow the recipe.

  • 4 cups vegetable oil
  • 1 (7.5 ounce) package refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, separated
  • 3/4 cup seedless strawberry jam
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • In a cast iron skillet or deep fryer, heat oil to 375 degrees F. Fry biscuits, a few at a time, for 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.

    1. Cut a small hole in the corner of a pastry or plastic bag; insert a very small tip. Fill bag with jam. Push the tip through the side of each doughnut to fill with jam. Dust with confectioners' sugar while warm. Serve immediately.
