Foodie Christmas Gifts {Week 3}

Bekki is back with yet another sweet treat that is meant for sharing! Personally, I think these would be delicious for Christmas morning, and you could even make them ahead!

A long time standing family tradition for us was always catching the different Christmas movies that were played throughout the month of December on tv. I remember my godmother calling our house and saying, “Babes in Toyland is coming on in 20 minutes, hurry and finish what you were doing and run over here.” Because it was one of my all time favorite things to do I followed instructions to the letter and ran a couple doors down to nab my favorite spot in her living room. The floor, right beside her and the fireplace was my perfect spot. No matter the movie, there was always a delicious baked treat waiting for us to share.  Still at the top of the list of those treats is apple cinnamon, donut holes. Yes I said donut holes! Whether you have them with a mug of hot chocolate or hot coffee they’re a winner.
Apple Cinnamon Donut Holes
 Vegetable oil  (enough to fill a large sauce pan several inches deep)
 1 10 oz can Jumbo Butter Biscuits
2 tsp Apple pie Spice
¼  tsp Cinnamon
¼ c. Sugar
Add oil to your vessel of choice and heat until 375 degrees. Add sugar, and spices to a pie plate and mix gently to combine. Set aside. Line a plate or baking sheet with paper towels to drain off excess oil from cooked donut holes. Set aside.
Open biscuits and separate each one. Press on them slightly to even out thickness. Cut with half inch (mini) biscuit cutter.
Note: Scrap pieces can be rolled into balls and fried as well so there’s no waste.
Add dough to heated oil a few at a time, and don’t over crowd the pan. Cook each side about 30 seconds or until golden brown. Drain well on paper towel lined baking sheet. Then roll gently in sugar mixture, to coat.
Try to resist the urge to dive in immediately because they are very hot. But served freshly made or snacked on throughout a movie I hope these little bites are a favorite of your family as much as they are ours. Enjoy!
