Making Doughnuts From Refrigerator Biscuits

Have you ever made doughnuts from refrigerator biscuits ? They are amazing topped with cinnamon and sugar !

I use these Grands biscuits from Pillsbury ..
You need to separate each biscuit into 2 pieces , otherwise they are too thick to cook evenly.
After you split them cut a hole in the center.. I used my cookie scoop :)
Mix up about 1/2 cup of sugar and a couple tsp. of cinnamon..
Heat your oil...I use canola oil..I only use about 1 inch of oil in a small saucepan to fry them .. it only takes a couple minutes each side .. Don't let them get too brown..
Turn over when you can see the sides getting a little brown, drain on paper towels then dredge in the sugar cinnamon mixture..Fry up the holes you cut out too.. They are fabulous :)
Your kids will LOVE these ! We have also sprinkled them with powdered sugar , or you could make a glaze or a chocolate glaze..


I would love for you to follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest ..all the links are in the sidebar !
 I love your visits and nice comments !

Ah, that takes me back :-) My mom used to make those when I was little. My husband's never tried them so I may have to make him some. Thanks for the step by step tutorial :-)

Priscilla - thx for reminding me of this. We used to make them for our kids all the time. Well, Grandchildren would love them too, right?
