Puff Pastry Donuts

We used to love making homemade donuts using Pillsbury Grand's biscuits. Add that to the list of things we can't get here and another mission to find something to replace it. I tried a few different recipes from scratch and I must be a donut delinquent because they were all too time consuming and never turned out the way the picture looked. When I came across this recipe it was like the heavens opened and angels began to sing. Not only do we have puff pastery, but it is super quick, super easy and super delicious. Little dream puffs on a plate is what these are.

2 sheets puff pastry, thawed
Vegetable oil, for frying
2 cups powdered sugar
4 Tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

On a lightly floured surface, roll out puff pastry. Cut circles out of puff pastry using two different sized circle cookie cutters, a larger circle for the outside and a smaller circle for the center. Fill a large pot with an inch of vegetable oil and heat over medium-high heat. Cook donuts and donut holes in hot vegetable oil, flipping when one side is golden. In a mixing bowl, whisk together sugar, milk and vanilla to make glaze. While the donuts are still hot, dip them in the glaze.
