  • 1 tube biscuit dough, flaky
  • ½ cup (100 g) granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • Canola or vegetable oil, for cooking


  • Fill a frying pan halfway with oil. Heat over medium heat until the oil reaches 375°F with a candy thermometer.
  • In a large ziplock bag, mix sugar and cinnamon.
  • Separate the dough into 8 biscuits.
  • Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces, pinching the edges to keep the dough from spreading (fanning out) during the cooking.
  • Drop the dough into the hot oil and cook until brown. Flip the donuts with a metal slotted spoon to cook the other side.
  • Place the cooked dough on a paper towel to absorb the grease.
  • Drop the cooked dough into the plastic bag with cinnamon and sugar, and shake the bag to coat the dough pieces.
  • Serve warm.



Air Fryer Instructions

I did opt to decrease the cinnamon sugar coating in half.  To make them in the air fryer follow the directions below up to step 4. Spray the air fryer with non-stick spray and then place the dough into the air fryer in a single layer and cook at 350°F for five minutes. Flip the dough over, spray with non-stick spray, and continue air frying for another 5 minutes. Remove and coat with cinnamon sugar.
