Canned Biscuit Dough Donuts and Holes

10:00 AM

Surprisingly light and airy, these homemade donuts made with canned biscuit dough were the dessert du jour for the last leg of our trip in Florida. Now, I have to give credit where credit is let's give a round of applause to my mom-in-law for whipping these churro-flavored donuts up.

Now let's give her a thumbs down for introducing me to these little diet devils. I feel like I just took a bite from the fruit of the Tree Of Knowledge. Why, Lolly....WHY??? If you make these, you'll 100% be asking me the same question. I apologize in advance.

Canned Biscuit Dough Donuts and Holes

(Yes, I'm slightly devastated that I'm writing a post inspired by Mrs. Let's Eat A Stick Of Butter And Laugh About It)


Peanut or canola oil, for frying
Canned Biscuit Dough
Cinnamon and sugar (to coat)


Heat 2 inches oil in a large pot or Dutch oven to 350 degrees F.

Lay out the biscuits on a cutting board and with a 1 1/2-inch round cookie or biscuit cutter, cut out a hole from the middle of each biscuit. Fry the rings and holes in the oil until golden and then flip with tongs to fry the other side. Drain on paper towels and then toss on the cinnamon-sugar or ice and decorate with sprinkles, as desired.
PS: These would pair smashingly with some Casa Brasil coffee...
