Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (16 1/3 ounce) can biscuits (I like Pillsbury Grand Flaky Layers)
  • 4 -6 cups oil
  • 12 cup cinnamon sugar


  1. Heat oil in a 2 quart (or medium) saucepan over medium heat for about 10 minutes.
  2. Test the oil by sprinkling a few water droplets into the pan.
  3. If the oil bubbles a little, it's ready.
  4. If it boils a LOT and starts splattering, take it off the heat for 2-3 minutes, lower the heat a notch or two, and then put it back on for frying.
  5. Prepare a stack of paper towels. This is for absorbing some excess oil from the fried biscuits. I usually set my stack of towels on a wire cooling rack.
  6. Cut a small hole in the middle of the biscuits like a donut (this keeps the center from being doughy-- it's not just for looks :).
  7. Place the biscuits, one at a time, into the hot oil. Let it fry for 1-2 minutes on each side until golden brown.
  8. Let it sit on the paper towels for a minute to absorb some of the excess oil before dipping it into the cinnamon sugar and serving warm!
