Easy Donut Holes

Love, love donuts. I don’t always want to leave the house for them, and sometimes I want them when the donut shops are closed. This is a super easy way to make them at home for a fraction of the cost.

Donut Holes Recipe
Print
Ingredients
  1. • 1 package of biscuits (NOT the flakey kind. Big country biscuits, and the store brand is just fine)
  2. • Vegetable oil
  3. • Sugar and cinnamon
  4. • Powdered sugar
  5. • Milk
  6. • Vanilla
  7. • Cupcake filler (see below)
Instructions
  1. Flatten out a biscuit slightly. Use a cupcake filler to cut the dough into perfect size circles. Do this for all 8 biscuits. Use the scraps and reform and keep cutting until all of the dough is used. I usually get around 40 holes. This cupcake filler is not so great for cupcakes (too large in my opinion), but perfect for donut holes and cookies (see below).
  2. While you are cutting the dough, in a large sauce pan heat the oil. I usually set the heat between low and medium and place about a half an inch of oil in the pan.
  3. Prepare the toppings. You can go crazy hear. I mix sugar and cinnamon in one bowl and make a glase in another. For the glaze place powdered sugar in the bowl with a touch of vanilla extract. Pour a small amount of milk in the bowl and wisk until you ge the right consistency. You might have to add more milk or sugar. Set those aside.
  4. Place holes into the oil. I use a metal slotted spoon to turn the hole. You don’t want the holes to get too brown. I turn several times and cook for approximately 3-5 minutes depending on fast they are browning.
  5. Using spoon, place on a plate lined with paper towels to soak up the excess oil.
  6. Once cool enough to handle, but not so cool that the glaze and sugar mixture won’t stick, roll or dip the holes in your mixture of choice. You can get fancy and add food coloring to the glaze and then add sprinkles, coconut, or whatever. You could also let the kiddos decorate their own donuts.
  7. Set on parchment paper or stuff in your mouth.
