  • 1 can of refrigerated biscuit dough I used a 10 count can
  • 4-5 cups canola oil- This amount will vary based on the size of the pot you are using. Pour the oil into the pot until it's at-least an inch and a half deep
  • 1 cup powdered sugar you could also use cinnamon sugar instead of the powdered sugar


  • Heat the canola oil to 250-300 degrees. You can tell when it's hot enough when you drop the dough into the oil and it bubbles
  • Take each biscuit and flatten it out to about 1/4 inch thick
  • To cut the hole out of the middle of the dough, I used a clear plastic medicine cup (the kind that comes with children's liquid medicine)
  • After you've cut out the holes drop them into the oil 3 or 4 at a time. Keep a close eye on them because you will have to turn them over in about 10-20 seconds, depending on how hot your oil is.
  • After you've browned both sides to a golden color, remove them from the oil and place them on plate lined with paper towels.
  • When they are cool enough to handle you can either place the donuts in a bag with the powdered sugar and shake them or dust the tops with powder sugar
