How To Make The Easiest Homemade Donut Hole Recipe With Pillsbury Biscuits
Honestly, you probably don’t even need any instructions as these pictures pretty much explain it all, but I’m going to give them to you anyway. I don’t want you messing these up.
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Microwave the butter in a small bowl until thoroughly melted.
- In a separate bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon together.
- Open up the biscuits and cut all 8 of them into quarters.
- Roll the dough pieces into balls, drench them in the butter, and then roll them in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
- Place them in a greased shallow baking dish and bake for 15-20 minutes.
- Try not to eat them all in one sitting.
Here are the beautiful dough balls covered in sugar and cinnamon before baking. They just barely fit in this pie dish! I’d actually recommend using a slightly larger baking dish than what I used, as I preferred the crispy donut holes on the outer edge compared to the softer ones in the middle.
You could also melt a little cream cheese frosting in the microwave and then drizzle the donut holes with it after they get done baking. Whhaatt!?? Why did I just now think of that.
These quick and easy oven baked donut holes are the best little treats! They are so simple to make with a can of biscuits, melted butter, cinnamon, and sugar. Serve them for dessert or even as a sweet breakfast on lazy Sunday mornings at home with the kids.
- 1 can Pillsbury Biscuits (8 biscuits)
- 6 tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a shallow baking dish. *Read Notes Below
Cut the biscuits into 4 equal quarters and then roll them into balls.
Melt the butter in a small bowl, and then mix the cinnamon and sugar together in a separate bowl.
Drench the dough balls into the butter and then roll them around in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
Line them all up in your dish and bake for 15-20 minutes.
Eat alone or with a little melted cream cheese frosting. Yum!
*The dish you choose for this recipe will greatly effect the texture and cook time of the dough. If your dough is touching you will get really soft donut holes that need a little more bake time, but if your dough has some space in between you'll get a crispier and more even result. The next time I make these I'll probably try them in a larger dish so that there's a little more space in between each dough ball.
