  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  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.

Footnotes

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 in...

OMG! I can't believe how easy it was to make these doughnuts!! I also made a chocolate glaze. My son loved them! Thanks for the recipe!

I always make my doughnuts like this. In fact i use a turkey baster and jelly sometimes and i make jelly doughnuts as well. They come out great!

The whole family (and our neighbors!) loved these. We put the powdered sugar in a sifter and let the kids "snow" the doughnuts. We also had a bowl of holiday-colored regular sugar and cinnamon t...

I have been making these doughnuts for years, and it really doesn't get any better for a fast, good breakfast treat (or anytime treat) that everyone likes. Try adding cinnamon to the powdered s...

These were quick, easy, and yummy! I can whip up 6 doughnuts (and doughnut holes!) in no time! :-) I love them with chocolate glaze; my kids liked them better with powder sugar. A keeper!
