These are easy to make using purchased flaky biscuits as the doughnut base.
1 Can Pillsbury Grans Biscuits 1 1/2 C sugar
Canola Oil for frying
Vanilla Filling :
1 C butter (softened) 3 C powder sugar 2 T Milk 1/2 t vanilla
Making the Cream filling:
In bowl of stand mixer fitted with whisk beater, place butter and powdered sugar. Beat on low speed until well mixed. Increase speed to high; beat about 4 minutes or until soft and fluffy.
Scrape down bowl. Add milk and vanilla; beat 4 minutes longer. Set aside.
Pour canola oil into 10-inch-wide saucepan or Dutch oven until at least 2 1/2 inches deep. Heat oil over medium heat until deep-fry temperature reads 375°F. Line large plate with paper towel; set aside.
Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Place 4 biscuits in hot oil; fry 3 to 4 minutes. Using spatula, flip biscuits over; fry 3 to 4 minutes longer. Transfer doughnuts to paper towel-lined plate to absorb any oil. Toss doughnuts in granulated sugar.
Using handle of wooden spoon, poke a hole in side of each doughnut. Fill decorating bag fit with small hole tip with Vanilla Cream. Squeeze enough vanilla cream into each doughnut to fill hole.
