1
Pour oil about 1/2" deep in a cast iron skillet or any large skillet and heat on med-high heat for about 5 minutes. DO NOT LEAVE OIL UNATTENDED.

To test the oil, use handle of wooden spoon dipped in oil..if it bubbles around it, oil is hot enough. or I put a doughnut hole in it. It should sizzle and bubble around the edges and then you know its hot enough.

To prepare biscuits for frying : Take out of Pkg. and place on a baking sheet while the oil is heating up.

CAREFULLY Place Donuts ( 2 - 3 @ a time )in oil and cook until golden brown and using clasps GENTLY flip over ; once golden brown on both sides remove and place on paper towels to absorb any left over oil.
6
Fill a pastry bag with pudding or * Lemon Curd or ** the Strawberry Curd Poke the donuts on the side with the frosting tip and slowly squeeze in the filling. Dip filled donuts in the prepared glaze or chocolate and put on a wire rack.
7
For the glaze mix ingredients together until smooth.
