The unusual name was given to the donuts after the young son of the blogger who introduced the recipe brought home a plate of fresh homemade donuts from the neighbor's house! :) -LuAnn

3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup hot water
4 or more cans of Pillsbury, or any other brand, refrigerator case biscuits (we used the inexpensive kind from Walmart)
24 - 48 ounces canola oil
Start by making the glaze:
Pour the powdered sugar in to a small wide bowl.
Add 1/3 cup of hot water.
Stir until smooth and well combined; set aside.
To make the donuts:
Start with several cans of refrigerated biscuit dough. (Any style will do).
In a saucepan or deep fryer, pour oil deep enough to cover donuts.
(I used a little more than half of a 48 ounce bottle of oil in an 8-inch diameter saucepan.)
Heat the oil to between 375ºF and 400ºF.
(375ºF is the optimal frying temperature but the oil will cool a little when the donuts are dropped into it.)
Pull a hole in the middle of each biscuit, to make it donut shaped, and drop it into the oil.
Cook three or four at a time for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes turning halfway through.
When golden, remove the donuts with a slotted spoon and drain on white paper towels.
When cool enough to handle dip the donut in the glaze letting any excess drip back into the bowl.
Set on wire rack to cool or serve warm.
