These are great.But it does make alot and they need to be eaten fresh. I cut the recipe in half and it is just about perfect for me and my husband

Love the concept but don't quite understand the glaze part. I followed the recipe but ended up with course dry "glaze". It wasn't glaze at all. I have to keep putting half and half in it. Alot more than just 3 to 4 Tablespoons.
Any feedback on this would be helpful.

I cut the Southern Style Grands into quarters and made little pumpkin pie doughnuts! The kids loved them. There was extra glaze so I am saving for another batch tomorrow morning.
Tip: Blot doughnuts on a paper towel before dipping in glaze. Yummy!

So I haven't made the pumpkins ones specifically but I did make the apple spice and I found that if I half the biscuits before frying they do much better and it makes more doughnuts! And for the thickness of the glaze just start out with 3 cups powered sugar and add more till its at the consistancy you like.

The only problem I have with this is that Grands are just too thick to properly fry. I tried this with a store brand biscuit that wasnt thick and they came out perfect. Maybe if Pillsbury had a regular sized biscuit we could do this with. I enjoy grands, but they just don't fry well. If the outside is perfect, the inside is doughey. If the inside is perfect, the outside is hard and crunchy. sorry...just my experience.

Heck if there is to much glaze just more doughnuts.

Mea culpa! The holes were in the recipe! That might teach me to read them ALL the way through.

This comment is #15. I can't believe nobody yet has suggested tossing the 'holes' in after the doughnuts and glazing them too! Back in the '60's we used to cut those original biscuits in quarters and turn them into doughnuts.

I love how easy these doughnuts are to make!
However, the glaze is 4 times as much as you need and way to thick. Anyone can make their own glaze recipe by eyeballing a little milk and vanilla into some powdered sugar until it's as thin as you want. Then add any spice or favoring to your liking.
Love this idea for pumpkin!

You could cut the glaze recipe in half if too much for 8 donuts.
