Grands!® Spring Doughnuts How-To

Grands spring doughnuts
Biscuits are doughnut-shop delicious when fried and topped with a simple glaze. MORE+ LESS-
By Joanne and Adam Gallagher

Making delicious doughnuts in minutes doesn’t seem possible, but with refrigerated biscuit dough, it is! After trying these, we were hooked and know you will be, too!

Here’s what you’re going to need: Pillsbury® Grands!® Biscuits, oil for frying, powdered sugar, milk, vanilla extract and food coloring paste.

Open the biscuit package. (Try not to jump. I do every time!) Separate the biscuits. Use a small cookie cutter, bottle cap or, in my case, the end of a pastry tip to cut out a hole in the middle.

Add the biscuits, 2 to 3 at a time, to hot oil and fry until golden brown on one side. Flip and fry until the second side is golden brown.

Place the fried doughnuts on a wire rack and let cool. While they cool, you can make the glaze. Combine powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract.

Use food coloring paste to color the glaze to your liking. We went with light pink and yellow for spring.

Dip each cooled doughnut into the glaze. Place back onto the wire rack and top with sprinkles. Allow the glaze to set and then enjoy!
