can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Flaky Layers refrigerated Original biscuits
Canola oil (about 5 cups)
1 1/2
cups granulated sugar


  1. 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. 2 Scrape down bowl. Add milk and vanilla; beat 4 minutes longer. Set aside.
  3. 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. 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.
