  • 1 can (8 rolls) of biscuit dough
  • Cooking oilfor frying


  • 1½ cups of confectioner’s or powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp of cold water
  • ½ – 1 tsp of ground cinnamonoptional


Step 1

Remove the biscuit dough from the can, then separate them, cut the center, and roll the cutout into a smooth ball. If you want to make twisted donuts, slice the dough into 2 strips, then stretch them out a bit or roll them while pulling each end, pinch the ends of 2 strips together, twist them, and pinch the other end close. Prepare the glaze in a medium-sized mixing bowl, simply add the powdered sugar, salt, and ground cinnamon if using, then whisk them together until there are no more lumps, add the water and vanilla extract, and continue whisking until uniform and well combined.

Step 2

Add more water if the consistency is too thick, then line a baking sheet with a wire rack, and set them aside. Place a saucepan on a stove over low to medium heat, then add the oil, and let it heat up before frying the first batch of donuts. Make sure that the inside is cooked through before the outside burns, then once nice and golden brown, remove from the oil, and transfer to the wire rack to drain off any excess oil. Once the donuts have drained enough oil, coat them with the prepared glaze, then tap away the excess, and put them back in the wire rack to let the glaze set. Serve and enjoy!
