Easy Donut Holes with Canned Biscuits
Ohhhhh YES! I filled my donut holes with an easy homemade lemon curd but they’re still awesome plain. The possibilities are endless with fillings… jelly, cheesecake filling, chocolate, cream… whatever your heart desires!
I used Pillsbury Grands Southern Homestyle biscuits. Cut each biscuit into four pieces and roll into balls.
Fry them in vegetable oil, four to five at a time. It’s important that the oil is at 350 degrees F, so I used a candy thermometer. The amount of vegetable oil you will need depends upon the size of the pan you’re using (fill 1-1/2 inches high).
Oh my goodness these were the best! To add your favorite filling: Fill a piping bag with the filling and use a small tip to pipe it in until the donut hole slightly expands.
You won’t be able to stop at just one, so BEWARE! 🙂Print
So quick, easy & delicious! Make them plain or fill with your favorite filling!
For the donut holes:
- 1 can Pillsbury Grands Southern Homestyle Biscuits (NOT the flaky kind!)
- Vegetable oil
- Filling (if desired) I used homemade lemon curd
For the glaze
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 4 tablespoons milk or water
For the donut holes:
- Separate each biscuit from can. Cut each biscuit evenly into 4 pieces and roll into balls.
- Fill a saucepan or dutch oven 1-1/2 inches with vegetable oil. Heat to 350 degrees F over medium heat.
- Fry donut holes in batches of 4 to 5 at a time, turning with tongs while frying to brown evenly. Place on a plate lined with paper towels.
- If filling: Fill a pastry bag with filling. Using a small tip, pipe filling into each donut hole until it expands slightly.
- Dip into glaze to coat evenly
For the glaze:
- In a medium bowl, stir powdered sugar and milk (or water) until smooth.
