Bacon Glazed Donut Holes

This is one of my daughters favorite treats! For obvious reasons I don't make them often but when I do she is in 7th heaven!  Also a great easy recipe to get your kids in the kithen to help and be involved!

Bacon Glazed Donut Holes

1 can buttermilk biscuit dough
vegetable oil
2-3 slices cooked bacon nice and crispy
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
about 2 TB milk

seperate biscuits and cut each into quarters, roll into individual balls and set aside.
Heat 2-3 inches of oil into a small to medium sauce pan allowing enough depth of oil so donut can puff up and be submerged in oil.
Make glaze in small bowl adding powdered sugar, vanilla and stirring a very small amount of milk at a time until you reach a slightly runny consistency. Adding too much milk the glaze will take forever to set. If your glaze is too runny add a small amount more powdered sugar. Set aside.
Test oil to see if its hot enough by pinching off a small bit of dough and dropping it in, if hot enough the dough will puff up and sizzle right away if too hot the dough will brown immediately.
When oil is ready drop 4-5 balls of dough in at a time giving enough room for them not to touch and freely move around. Constantly turn and submerge dough in oil so them can puff up and turn golden evenly all around. DO NOT walk away!
Drain on paper towels when golden. they should be cooked through in 2-3 minutes.
while still warm turn donut in glaze to coat evenly.
Top with crumbled bacon and set on plate to set the glaze.
