“My mom got this recipe off a can of Pillsbury Refrigerated Biscuits. We all love doughnuts and this is a quick and extremely easy way to make them, they are wonderful and taste scrumptious. They really "hit the spot" if you are craving doughnuts. She uses Vanilla and Chocolate whipped cake icing to frost the doughnuts and just rolls the doughnut holes in powdered sugar. YUM! * Note this is her adapted recipe that she uses, but you can coat your doughnuts with the icing or coating of your choice.”
