How to Make Filled Donuts using Canned Biscuits

Step-by-Step

  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.
