You know, I remember my grandmother having some extra biscuits one day. I was probably about 8 or 9 years old. We absolutely loved refrigerator biscuits in our household. They were a perfect way to have the traditional treat without all the fuss. One day, she fried up a few of those leftover biscuits so they wouldn’t go bad and paired them with honey. Well, I’m using a really simple caramel sauce! This recipe is simple and at the first bite, I’m reminded why it was such a classic staple in my Granny’s repertoire.
Biscuit Donuts with Caramel Sauce
-1 can of flaky refrigerator biscuits
-4 cups of vegetable or canola oil
For the caramel sauce
-1 stick of butter
-1 cup of dark brown sugar
-1/4 cup of heavy cream
-1 pinch of salt
-1 teaspoon of vanilla
1. Preheat the vegetable oil to about 340-350 degrees.
2. Cut the biscuits into bite sized pieces and fry until golden brown. Drain on paper towels to remove any excess oil
3. For the caramel sauce, melt the butter and brown sugar together. Cook for 2-3 minutes over medium heat while constantly stirring.
4. Then, remove from the heat and add the salt, cream, and vanilla and stir until smooth.
