  • 1
    In bowl of stand mixer fitted with whisk beater, place butter and powdered sugar. Beat on low speed until well mixed. Increase speed to high; beat about 4 minutes or until soft and fluffy.
  • 2
    Scrape down bowl. Add milk and vanilla; beat 4 minutes longer. Set aside.
  • 3
    Pour canola oil into 10-inch-wide saucepan or Dutch oven until at least 2 1/2 inches deep. Heat oil over medium heat until deep-fry temperature reads 375°F. Line large plate with paper towel; set aside.
  • 4
    Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Place 4 biscuits in hot oil; fry 3 to 4 minutes. Using spatula, flip biscuits over; fry 3 to 4 minutes longer. Transfer doughnuts to paper towel-lined plate to absorb any oil. Toss doughnuts in granulated sugar.
  • 5
    Using handle of wooden spoon, poke a hole in side of each doughnut. Fill decorating bag fit with small hole tip with Vanilla Cream. Squeeze enough vanilla cream into each doughnut to fill hole.

Expert Tips

  • Make sure your butter is at room temperature or the frosting won’t be light and fluffy.
  • A deep-fry thermometer is an excellent tool to monitor the temperature of the oil.
  • If you don’t own a decorating bag, you can use two small zipper-topped plastic bags inside one another. Fill the bag and cut a small hole in one bottom corner to create your own piping bag.
