  • 16.3oz Grands! Buttermilk Biscuits
  • oil
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon


  • Heat 2 inches of oil in a large bottomed pot over medium heat. (Or in a deep fryer heated to 350)
  • Combine the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Separate each of the biscuits from the can and cut about 1 circular inch out of the middle of each. (You can fry those up as donut holes!)
  • When the oil is heated, put each biscuit in into your pot and cook until the bottom side turns lightly golden, then flip over and cook the other side till golden. (About 1.5-2 minutes total)
  • Set on paper towels to remove a little oil.
  • While still warm, dip all sides of each donut in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  • Repeat with additional donuts (and donut holes) and enjoy warm!
