One of my first bakery jobs was working the nightshift making doughnuts all night long. I got to eat all the doughnuts I wanted, but I usually gave up after two or three. I loved them, but a man can only do so much.
When I make these doughnuts using Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Original Biscuits, I’m always amazed at how much they taste like the doughnuts I used to make at the bakery. This biscuit dough makes fabulous doughnuts. You can make them in the morning for a weekend breakfast treat – they only take about ten minutes from the package to the table. If you choose to fill them with the vanilla cream, they’ll take a little longer but still well worth making.
With St. Patrick’s Day coming up, we thought these would be a perfect treat for breakfast or brunch. You could even add some Irish whiskey to the cream and surprise the grown-ups!
Place the powdered sugar and the butter in the bowl of a stand mixer. Using a wire whisk attachment beat on low until the sugar has mixed with the butter.
