Biscuit Donuts with Pumpkin Pie Glaze
Makes 8 donuts and 8 donut holes
vegetable oil for frying
pumpkin pie spice
can large refrigerated biscuits
8 biscuits- I use Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers
In 2-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium heat to 350°F to 375°F.
In large bowl, beat powdered sugar, pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin and just
enough half-and-half with whisk until smooth and thick glaze forms. Set
aside. Separate dough into 8 biscuits.
Using small round lid or cookie cutter, cut hole in center of each biscuit (I used my olive oil bottle lid).
Gently place 2 or 3 biscuits in hot oil. (Biscuit holes can also be fried!)
Fry on one side until golden brown. With tongs, gently turn each biscuit
over; fry until other side is golden brown.
Remove doughnuts from oil, let excess oil drip off (you can also pat with a paper towel to remove any oil)
Immediately dip into pumpkin glaze. I just dipped the top but you can dip the whole donut if you'd like! This recipe makes plenty of glaze!
Place doughnuts on cooling rack; cool 3 to 5 minutes or until glaze is set before serving.
