Why not make your own doughnuts? Following are two recipes from the Geezer
Cookbook. The first recipe uses refrigerator biscuits. Keep them cool or
they will start to pop out of their cases. Also, buy the cheapest ones you
can find. Our Scouts once picked out fancy refrigerator biscuits (crescent
rolls, I think) and they didn't work well at all.
The 2nd recipe requires some actual cooking, which may be useful for 1st
Class cooking if your troop requires more than just "warming things up".
3 cans buttermilk biscuits
Heat 1 in cooking oil in large skillet. Fry biscuits in oil until olden
brown. Mix sugar & cinnamon together and dredge doughnuts in mixture.
Geezer Honey Doughnuts
1 envelope dry yeast
1/2 cups warm water
3 cups flour
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbs oil
1 tsp sugar
Dissolve yeast in warm water, mix with other dry ingredients. Knead for
several minutes and set aside in warm place until dough doubles, about 2
hours. Roll flat, cut into 1 1/2" squares and allow to rise 1 hour. Heat
4 in of oil in Dutch oven. Drop squares into oil and cook to golden brown.
Drain and dredge in sugar & cinnamon mixture. Heat honey and drizzle over
doughnuts and serve.
