You make some gooey dough using flour, yeast and salt. You can use baking powder but its not quite as nice. You need to cook them in very hot oil, so be careful, and make sure you have a fire blanket or damp towel on hand. I am sure you will find recipes on google. Its well worth making your own because they are sooo nice!!
We use refriderated biscuits. We use cookie cutters to make fun shapes we fry them in vege oil then cover them with cinnamin sugar or powdered sugar. My kids love them.
