  • Yield: 32 donut holes


Enjoy these plain or fill with your favorite filling.  So easy and delicious!


For the donut holes:

  • 1 can Pillsbury Grands Southern Homestyle Biscuits (NOT the flaky kind!)
  • Vegetable oil
  • Your favorite filling (if desired) I used homemade lemon curd

For the glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 tablespoons milk or water


For the donut holes:

  1. Separate each biscuit from can. Cut each biscuit evenly into 4 pieces and roll into balls.
  2. Fill a saucepan or dutch oven 1 1/2 inches with vegetable oil. Heat to 350 degrees F over medium heat.
  3. 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.
  4. If filling: Fill a pastry bag with filling. Using a small tip, pipe filling into each donut hole until it expands slightly.
  5. Dip into glaze to coat evenly.

For the glaze:

  1. In a medium bowl, stir powdered sugar and milk (or water) until smooth.
