Well… I missed National Donut Day last week…
But I don’t need a “holiday” to enjoy donuts. Do you? Yeah, I didn’t think so.
My daughter and I were craving some donuts and instead of driving to the store to get some, I decided to make my own.
I had a can of Pillsbury Biscuits in the fridge and I decided to make some super easy donuts to satisfy our craving.
My daughter LOVED the homemade donuts!
I made an easy sugar glaze and she had a blast adding sprinkles. There may have been a few that were drenched in sprinkles… but that just adds to the fun!
I remember making these donuts as a kid for “special weekends”. Honestly, I don’t know why there needs to be a “special” reason to make these.
They take minimal time.
They take minimal effort.
They deliver a HUGE smile!
