Pillsbury Grands Doughnuts (Bakery Size)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by pressurecooker

Big, bakery-size doughnuts made from Pillsbury Grands biscuits. I have made lots with the regular-size biscuit, but they don't compare to these. Look and taste great! My husband said " Oh! you went to the bakery?"

These were so tasty and so easy! I took your advice and used the top of a cinnamon shaker to cut out the holes. The kids loved helping me cut them out. We used just the cinnamon/sugar and cut way down on the cinnamon due to personal taste. Thanks for a great and easy recipe!
