How to Make Filled Donut Holes !
- Put oil in sauce pan or deep fryer. Do not heat until almost ready to start cooking.
- Remove the biscuits and separate them. Press down on the biscuits (one at a time) to make them about 3-1/2 inches round. Using a 1-1/2 inch round donut or cookie cutter, cut 3 holes in each biscuit. (Save the scraps).
- Using a sharp knife, slice almost all the way through the donut hole (but not all the way!). Put about 1/4 teaspoon of filling in the inside center. Pinch edges together all the way around to seal.
- Heat the oil. When it is hot, fry all of the scraps of dough. Remove them from hot oil to paper towel lined dish. While still warm: Coat them in powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar.
- Fry 3 or 4 donut holes at a time, browning them on all sides. Remove to paper towel lined dish to drain off oil. Coat with powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar.
- *** I like to put the sugars into zipper bags, then do 4 donut holes at a time by gently shaking the bag.
*** You can do this recipe with full size biscuits as well, just cut through the large one the same way, and put 1 teaspoon to 1-1/2 teaspoons of filling before sealing the edges. Fry. Drain. Then coat one donut at a time in the sugars.
