Fried Doughnuts

1 10-count package of pre-made refrigerated biscuits

24 ounces canola oil (for frying)

1/4 cup raspberry jelly or jam (or use your favorite flavor)

1/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

Separate biscuits and flatten them so diameter is about 4 inches.

Place about a teaspoon of jelly or jam in the center of each biscuit. Bring the edges together to form a ball. Pinch it closed at the top to seal in the filling.

When all 10 dougnuts are ready, pour the oil in a saucepan and bring to 350 degrees F. While waiting for the oil to reach temperature, pour sugar and cinnamon onto a plate and mix together.

When oil is ready, use a slotted spoon to lower the dougnuts into the oil. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side, until the dough is cooked through and golden brown.

Remove doughnuts from oil with slotted spoon and place on plate with cinnamon sugar. Gently roll the doughnut to coat. Be careful, the doughnut will be hot. Let cool slightly and serve.
