We just tried the best recipe using canned biscuits, try these on a rainy day or anyday with your kids.
Roll cheap canned biscuits
apples (peeled, cored and sliced into wedges)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup sugar
1 stick margarine
1 cup water
Boil water, margarine, sugar and cinnamon, stirring frequently. Take slice of apple, 1 raw biscuit (stretch out with fingers) wrap around and pinch shut. Place all apples dumplings on pan, pour boiled topping over the top. Place in 350 degree oven until browned. Absolutely delicious, add cool whip or ice cream for an extra treat.
My son and I also take canned biscuits cut the center out with a 2 liter cola lid, drop in hot oil (be careful, I usually drop them and keep son out of the way) once browned (you will have to flip them to brown other side) take them out and either dip them in frosting or powdered sugar for a sweet airy doughnut.
Have fun, I LOVE COOKING WITH KIDS!
