Homemade Doughnuts How-To

Refrigerated buttermilk biscuits make it a snap to make doughnuts at home in three easy steps.
By Arlene Cummings

Homemade doughnuts are fun and easy with Pillsbury® biscuits. It’s as easy as 1-2-3.

When I make mine, I make them all different ways. Some of them get icing and others get tossed in a paper bag with some cinnamon sugar when they come out of the oil. The kids love icing and sprinkles. Sometimes, we have fun just taking turns decorating our own doughnuts. Just fry up a few batches and let everyone go crazy with their different icing and sprinkle choices. Give out extras to your neighbors!

Start by unrolling a container of Pillsbury® refrigerated buttermilk biscuits and cutting a hole in the center.

They don’t take long at all to cook in hot oil so be sure to keep an eye on them.

Once they are cooked, the fun begins. Frostings melted in the microwave makes a simple glaze. You can do any flavor you like but my kids prefer chocolate with sprinkles.
