Directions

  1. Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Separate out the biscuits and cut a hole in the middle of each one, like you would a doughnut. You can get creative on this part and make different shapes. Just be sure not to make them too thick in any places, or they will not cook all the way through.
  3. Carefully slide doughnuts into hot oil. Fry until golden brown on both sides. Drain briefly on wire racks placed over baking sheets.
  4. Place the confectioners' sugar in a bowl and roll the hot doughnuts in the sugar.

Can I give this 10 stars?!? My son LOVES donuts and I promised him donuts for breakfast this morning...however, we awoke to a terrible rainstorm and I didn't want to drive 11 miles to the closest donut shop. I found this recipe and was apprehensive because we are donut snobs and the thought of heavy 'biscuit' donuts just didn't appeal to me, however, I thought I would give it a try. I found that I only had "Reduced Fat Flaky Layers" type of biscuits so I was worried, but OH MY LORD...they were absolutely wonderful! They puffed up beautifully and were light and airy inside and crispy on the outside. They were amazing! My sons eyes lit up when he took the first bite and the magic words came from him mouth...'Mom, these are the best donuts I have ever tasted"...ahhhhh success!!! I made vanilla and chocolate glazes and they were great and also did a few with cinnamon sugar...YUMMMMM. I melted a chocolate truffle and added it to the chocolate glazeā€¦that shot the taste into outerspace! My son can't wait me for me to make these again, but my husband has begged me not to ever make them again...because he ate 3 of them!! I hit it out of the park on this one!

My grandma used to make doughnuts like this too. I love them. She made a glaze of confectioner's sugar and milk and pour over them - YUMMY.

Not to get all TMI on everyone, but when it's "that time of the month" I crave apple pie like nobody's business! So I make these donuts, using a baster to add apple pie filling to the center instead of cutting a hole in the middle. While they're draining, I sprinkle generously with cinnamon and sugar. The result is Apple Pie Donut Heaven.
