Make easy doughnuts from Pillsbury™ Grands!™ biscuits. Colored glazes are fun for spring!
Updated Oct 4, 2016

Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    In deep fryer or 2-quart heavy saucepan, heat oil over medium heat to 350°F. Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Using small round cookie cutter, cut hole in center of each biscuit.
  • 2
    Gently place 2 or 3 biscuits in hot oil. (Biscuit holes can also be fried!) Fry on one side until golden brown. Gently turn with tongs; fry until other side is golden brown. Place on cooling rack; cool 3 to 5 minutes.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix powdered sugar, milk and vanilla until thick glaze forms. Remove half of the glaze to another bowl. Add 1 dot red food color paste to 1 bowl of glaze; stir until incorporated. Add more food color, if necessary, until desired pink shade is reached. Tint second bowl of glaze to desired shade with yellow food color.
  • 4
    Dip 4 doughnuts in pink glaze and 4 in yellow glaze. Return to cooling rack. Immediately top with sprinkles. Let glaze dry 2 to 3 minutes before serving.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Flavor the pink glaze with raspberry extract and the yellow glaze with lemon extract, if desired.
  • tip 2
    Doughnuts can also be coated with cinnamon-sugar instead of glazed. Just give them a shake in a paper bag filled with a mixture of granulated sugar and ground cinnamon.
