30min | 24 servings | 116 cal


1 16-ounce can refrigerated biscuit dough (8-biscuit size)
Vegetable oil or peanut oil
2 cups powdered sugar or 1 recipe Powdered Sugar Glaze (recipe below) Fresh fruit for serving such as fresh raspberries, blueberries, and/or blackberries (optional)


Prep: 20min | Ready in: 40min

Step 1

Remove biscuit dough from can and separate into 8 biscuits. Using a small (1 1/2 inch), round cookie cutter, cut 3 rounds from each biscuit. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes for dough to soften.

Step 2

Heat oil to 350°F. Fry 6 doughnut holes at a time in deep, hot fat for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes or until deep golden brown, turning halfway through cooking with a slotted spoon. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining doughnut holes.

Step 3

Toss doughnut holes in powdered sugar to coat or dip in Powdered Sugar Glaze to coat completely. Serve with fresh fruit.
