Cinnamon Roll Fried Dough Balls

I have always been afraid of frying things for whatever reason... I think cause it just seemed scary working with hot oil and stuff. But now that I have done it a few times and have the hang of it I want to fry everything and can't stop thinking about different things to try frying.

These were an experiment yesterday that turned out quite fabulously! My uncle and husband were working at our house when I fed these to them, and they were both RAVING about them. I won't lie, they were pretty tasty.

And by pretty tasty, I mean amazing! And SO so easy!
They would be perfect for breakfast. Who doesn't love fried cinnamon sugar things for breakfast?

Cinnamon Roll Fried Dough Balls

1 cup AP flour
1/8 tsp. baking soda
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3 TBSP. butter
1/2 cup buttermilk
Oil- For frying

Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt together.
Cut butter into chunks and keep cutting with a pastry cutter until it resembles coarse crumbs.
Add buttermilk and mix just until combined. You may need to add a bit more buttermilk- the dough should be pretty moist.
Turn dough out onto a floured surface, and need 5 times.
Press into a 1/2" disc with your hands...NOT a rolling pin.
Moisten surface of dough with water using your hands so the cinnamon and sugar will stick well.

Cinnamon sugar filling:
(these are approximate measurements cause I didn't actually measure)

1/4-1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. cinnamon

Liberally sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture all over surface of the dough. I used all mine...Basically the more you use, the yummier these things will be!
Tightly roll up dough and slice into 1/2" slices.
With your hand, press down on each disc so it doesn't fall apart when you pick it up to dry it.

Heat oil to around 375.
Drop 3-4 dough balls/sices in at a time and fry until golden brown on each side.

2 Tbsp. melted butter
2 Cups powered sugar
3 Tbsp. milk (more may be needed)

While they're still warm, glaze with a generous amount of glaze and eat!
