  • 1 tube biscuit dough, flaky
  • Canola or vegetable oil, for cooking
  • cups (150g) confectioners' sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla
  • 3-6 teaspoons water


  • Fill a frying pan halfway with oil. Heat over medium heat until the oil reaches 375°F with a candy thermometer.
  • Make the glaze by combining the sugar, vanilla, and 3 teaspoons of water. Add more water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until a pourable consistency is reached.
  • 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, and then drop the donuts into the bowl of glaze and turn to coat evenly.
  • Place on a wire rack to cool slightly.
  • Serve warm.
