Updated April 29, 2021

Ingredients

Chocolate Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 4 to 5 teaspoons milk

Citrus Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon or orange peel
  • 3 to 4 teaspoons lemon or orange juice

Vanilla Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 to 4 teaspoons milk

Doughnuts

  • Oil for deep frying
  • 2 cans (12 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Flaky Layers Buttermilk Biscuits (10 Count)

Steps

  • 1
    In small bowl(s), mix ingredients for desired Glaze(s) until smooth, adding enough liquid for desired glaze consistency. Cover; set aside.
  • 2
    Heat 3 inches oil in heavy saucepan or deep fat fryer to 375°F.
  • 3
    Separate cans of dough into 24 biscuits. With 1-inch round cookie cutter, cut hole in center of each biscuit. Fry biscuits and holes in hot oil 1 to 1 1/2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towel.
  • 4
    Dip top of each doughnut into desired glaze. Serve warm.

  • Don't be afraid to deep-fry -- it's easy! Just be sure to maintain correct oil temperature so outside gets crisp and golden brown and inside stays tender. One of the secrets of success is to fry doughnuts in batches to keep from overcrowding pan and causing a drop in oil temperature.
