What to so with leftover donut batter

So, last night (just because I had never fried anything before) I decided to try to fry up some classic cake donuts.

Well, they worked really well, but left my whole condo stinking of fry oil and I ended up deciding not to finish frying them all (I don't really even like donuts - again, I just wanted to see if it would work). Now I have half of the dough left sitting in the fridge, but I don't want to throw it out.

Does anyone know what else I can do with that batter? It's very firm, firmer than a cookie dough, but can I bake them like cookies, do you think? There is baking powder in the dough, but not baking soda. Any ideas would be very much appreciated!

Thanks in advance!
