Makes32 pieces


  • vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 8-biscuit tube refrigerated biscuits
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk


  1. In a heavy, deep and wide skillet or wok, heat enough oil to fill it to a depth of 3 inches.  
    Over medium-high heat, raise oil to a temperature of 350 degrees F on a deep fry thermometer.

  2. While oil is heating, place sugar and cinnamon into a brown paper bag or a zip top plastic bag.  Shake to mix.

  3. Line a bake sheet with two layers of paper towel and set near the stove.

  4. Remove biscuits from their tube and cut each into quarters. When oil is hot enough to sizzle and bubble when a piece of dough is dipped into it, very carefully lower about ten of the pieces into it. There should be enough room for them to move around in the oil – they will often turn themselves over after about 1 minute; if not, manually turn them to fry all surfaces to a medium golden brown and cook the interior. Scoop from the oil with a slotted spoon onto the paper towel lined bake sheet. Repeat with the remaining pieces of dough.

  5. When fried biscuits have drained, drop them into the bag with sugar and cinnamon and shake to coat. Remove to a serving platter.

  6. Make the dip and glaze by combining the cream cheese, vanilla, and cinnamon in an electric mixer bowl. Whip on medium speed until smooth, then gradually add powdered sugar until smooth and thick. Drizzle in the milk until mixture reaches a pourable glaze consistency.  Drizzle some over the biscuits and serve the remaining in a small bowl for dipping. Serve while biscuits are still slightly warm.

These were unbelievably delicious. My mom used to make them, but without the icing. Now I'll never be able to eat them without that icing!

These were surprisingly delicious! The icing really took them to the next level.

I liked these! They weren't too sweet but they definitely did the trick of kicking my sweet tooth.

These were amazing! There were soft and delicious. Much better than any munchkins doughnuts I've bought
