This recipe is pretty good for what it is. If you're expecting a Dunkin' Donuts quality donut, you'll likely be disappointed. But really, how could fried dough and cinnamon sugar be bad? They grow progressively soggy and disgusting the longer they sit, so you might need enough people to eat them immediately. Or, since you can't freeze Grands, you could make your own biscuit dough to order, or try freezing your own. I've never done that, but I hear there's only a small sacrifice in taste/quality with freezing your own biscuit dough. Also, even though I measured the temp of the oil, the donuts got a little burnt. Weirdly enough, the donut holes, cooking at the same time in the same pan, came out perfectly. Next time, I'm doing nothing but donut holes. Not only do they seem to cook and puff better, much more surface area for all the happy oil and cinnamon sugar to work its magic on.

My daughter loved making these! So easy and so yummy. I used a little lower heat because they were browning too quickly. We used chocolate sauce as well as the sugar toppings. Yum!
