Delicious, crispy, puffy, light golden balls of dough - fried to perfection and served with cinnamon sugar topping.
Print Recipe


  • 1 C sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 10 ct can buttermilk biscuits
  • 375 F hot oil


  • Begin by heating oil in skillet or fryer (cast-iron, if you’re lucky)
  • Using scissors, cut each biscuit into quarters, and roll into balls (they will look really tiny, but they puff up when they cook, trust me)
  • When the oil is ready (375 F) gently drop about 6 doughnut holes at a time into it.
  • Using a wooden spoon, slowly roll the dough in the oil until it’s golden all over, remove from oil and place on a paper towel lined plate while you drop in more dough
  • Toss with sugar/cinnamon mixture
