Interesting! I'd never think of that on my own. Must try it sometime!

My mom has been making these for years. She can never make enough of them they are devoured so quickly. She gets asked for the recipe every time. If I remember right she fries them in crisco and then the icing is powdered sugar, milk, vanilla, and a touch of cream cheese.

We use to do this all the time. They really aren't bad at all. You can dust them with powdered sugar, dip them in your favorite melted chocolate. You can also keep them whole and squeeze some flavored pudding in them too.

They have these on the buffet in most Chinese restaurants. They fry the whole biscuit and roll it in white granulated sugar. I have made them at home and they are good.

ABJ, what is "a tough of cream cheese"?

Well, I guess we're just going to have to try them out!

I like Uncle Bob's idea of doing them like beignets. I know they won't taste the same, but it's been so many years since I've had a beignet, that I'm sure it will taste good to me.
Parden me, if I have hot chocolate (with a shot of Bailey's), instead of coffee, with mine.

A fried biscuit has the taste and texture of a fried biscuit. While it's good for what it is ... is does not resemble cake donuts, yeast donuts, beignet or sopapilla (the Mexican cousin of the French beignet) in either flavor or texture.

Mom used to make these back in the '50's - and we used to make these on Boy Scout camp outs back in the '60's ... before smores (think that was a Girl Scout invention).

They are, however, quite tasty.

You can also lay the biscuits out on a baking sheet ... use your thumb to poke a "well" in the cetner ... fill the well with jelly, brush the biscuit with melted butter (and put a little knob of butter in the jelly), sprinkle on a bit of sugar, and bake. Poor man's jelly donut! My kids used to love them.

I'm going to guess "tough" is a typo and ABJ ment "touch". It sounds like a pretty standard basic cream cheese frosting.

Yes, "tough" was a typo. I meant "touch". That's what I get for typing fast when I'm in a hurry.
