I was trying to make a recipe up that would be easy, yet delicious, for my family and I, to enjoy a nice and simple dessert at home, and I came up with this. It is a store-bought biscuit, cut into 4, flattened out a little using your fingers, stuffed with cream cheese, pinched together, made into a ball, fried for a couple of minutes, dusted with white table sugar and cinnamon, then topped with powdered sugar. The 2 pictures show the different steps of achieving the cream cheese filled ball, and the final product. A regular size biscuit canister has 8 biscuits in it, and when cut into 4, will yield 32 doughnut balls, so since a biscuit is 4 triangles, a serving size will be 4 per serving. Here we go……
1 canister of plain pre-made biscuits (8 count), found in your grocer’s dairy section, each biscuit cut into 4, giving you 32 triangles
1/2 block of cream cheese (4 ounces, or more if needed), pre-cut into tiny chunks (about 3/4 inch big) as best as you can, using a knife or your fingers
deep pan with vegetable oil for frying
plate lines with napkins
white table sugar
- First, we are going to prepare our doughnut balls, by cutting all of our biscuits, stuffing them with a little piece of cream cheese, and pinching one side, then the other side, then rolling them into a ball, doing our best not to let any cream cheese leak out (please see attached picture).
- Second, set up your plate lined with paper towels.
- Third, we are going to heat our oil in a deep-frying pan, on medium heat, until hot (375 degrees). If you do not have a heat thermometer, then try frying one doughnut ball first, to see if your oil is ready. Once your oil is ready, the doughnut balls will cook VERY quickly (within 1.5 to 3 minutes).
- Fourth, When you think your oil is hot enough, VERY CAREFULLY place your doughnut balls, not overcrowding the pan, into your hot oil.
- Fifth, CAREFULLY REMOVE doughnut balls, and place on paper lined plate.
- Sixth, immediately sprinkle white table sugar and cinnamon on doughnut balls, and move the plate around in a circle a little to coat all the doughnut balls. Let cool for a few minutes. FILLING WILL BE HOT !
- Seventh, before you are ready to serve, dust with powdered sugar by either just sprinkling some on top, or using a sifter to dust your doughnut balls.
- That’s it !!!! Enjoy !!!!!
