The Best Keto Crispy Donuts

How to Make Cheater Biscuit Doughnuts

To make these cheater biscuit doughnuts, pop open a tube of biscuits and separate each biscuit

onto a baking sheet sprinkled with a little flour. For filled doughnuts, you don’t have to do anything

and they’re ready to fry. If you’re going to make doughnuts with holes in them, I found that a big

metal pastry tip is just the right size and has a sharp enough edge to cut out the holes. Make sure to

keep the dough cold while you heat up the oil.

Heat up about an inch of vegetable oil in a cast iron skillet or Dutch oven until it reaches 350°F (I

really recommend using a thermometer here), then drop the dough in and fry until puffed and

golden-brown, about 30 seconds on each side. To flip them, I found the best tools are actually

wooden chopsticks — hold a chopstick in each hand and gently nudge each doughnut over.

After the doughnuts are done, remove them to a wire cooling rack for just a few seconds to let the

excess oil drip off, then dust with powdered sugar or, my personal favorite, cinnamon-sugar.

For the filled doughnuts, poke a hole in the side of the doughnut with a paring knife and then use a

piping bag to squeeze your filling inside.

And don’t forget about those doughnut holes! Fry them up as a cook’s treat!

I tested and fried these doughnuts in the communal area of the building where I live and ended up
sharing the results with interested people walking by. They were devoured in just a few minutes, and
people were amazed that they were made out of canned biscuit dough. Give it a try and you might
be pleasantly surprised too!
