I felt like the smaller biscuits worked better for me. They seemed to fry/cook through better than the grands. I used a turkey baster, of all things, to cut a hole out of the middle of the biscuits. Just remove the part of the baster that you squeeze and set aside and use the plastic tubing with the large side. My mom showed me that trick 20 years ago. Also, the doughnuts are best right after they are out of the fryer. After they cool and sit, they aren't very tasty.

Just made these and they are very addicting. I used the Grands! Junior Honey Butter Flavor. A bottle cap was the perfect size to cut out the hole, and don't forget to fry them up too. They cook up in a minute. We tried them plain, with powdered sugar, and with honey, and they were all tasty. If you have a large family you will need more than one tube because they disappear fast. I will never need to buy donuts again after trying these. I'm so glad I found this recipe.

Pillsbury used to have donuts in a can when I was little. Had I know about using biscuits sooner... We made these, but used oil we had on hand. Then tossed in cinnamon sugar. I wish we'd had another can... So good!

my kids love the cinnamon and sugar over all others
