Maple Glazed-Bacon Donuts

For breakfast this morning, we were really wanting some donuts. And I remember as a child, my mom used to make donuts out of a can of biscuits (I know I find it so bizarre). Then just this week, Paula Deen was on the Food Network doing the exact same thing. My mom used to just shake the donuts in powdered sugar, and Paula did a chocolate glaze. We wanted something a little different then plain ole' donuts, so we made maple glazed donuts with bacon on top. They were really good, a little sweet & a little salty. I hope you like enjoy them :)

Maple Glazed-Bacon Donuts 
For the Maple Glaze:
1 ¼C Powdered Sugar
½C Maple Syrup
1t Vanilla

For the Donuts:
1 Can Biscuits
4 Strips Bacon, Cubed & Cooked
1Q Peanut Oil

1. Preheat the oil in your deep fryer to 350.
2. To make the Maple Glaze, whisk together powered sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla. Set aside for the donuts.
3.Using the biscuits, find a cookie a cutter to cut out a circle from the inside of a biscuit. Continue until all the biscuits look like donut rings. Fry the donuts for 2-3 minutes, flipping halfway. The donuts should be golden brown on each side and not doughy in the inside.
4. Let the donuts cool and then dip them in the glaze, then quickly add the cooked bacon, so that it will stick to the glaze.
5. Serve immediately!
