This is a variation of donuts from canned biscuits.

A little donut bite... with sweet filling! Yum!

We have been making these for years...

My husband and I would make every Sunday .... "Donut Day".... We made donuts, and donut holes... some filled some not... coated in sugars or frosted with sprinkles... We had a lot of fun doing this every Sunday with the kids.... it is a great family tradition and treat!

How to Make Filled Donut Holes !

Step-by-Step

  1. Put oil in sauce pan or deep fryer. Do not heat until almost ready to start cooking.
  2. 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).
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. *** 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.
