Whenever I make Chinese food, the hubs always insists on having Chinese donuts for dessert. I've seen them being made before & they are beyond easy, not to mention delicious (just refrigerated biscuit dough fried until lightly golden & tossed in granulated sugar). But when I was casually wandering down the refrigerated aisle at my local grocery store, I came across butter flavored crescent rolls...with an insane markdown! Technically the hubs still got his Chinese donuts, just on a whole new level of awesomeness.
•butter flavored crescent rolls
•vanilla ice cream
•oil for frying
- Using a deep fryer or even just a pot filled with an inch or two of oil, fry the crescent rolls until golden brown. (I kept mine whole because I'm a sucker for buttery dough, but for the hubs & kids I tore the dough into pieces before frying.)
- While the dough is still fairly fresh from the oil, roll in granulated sugar to coat.
- Repeat process with remaining crescent rolls.
- To serve, top a crescent roll with vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce & a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar.
