Maple Apple Bacon Mini Donuts

Everything is better with bacon ... especially donuts.

Ingredients

2
cans Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Jr. Golden Layers biscuits (10 biscuits total)
1 1/2
cups powdered sugar
1/4
cup maple syrup
1
large apple
6
strips bacon, fried and crumbled
Enough Vegetable oil to go about two inches deep in a deep pot

Directions

  • 1 Peel apple and dice into tiny cubes.
  • 2 Heat oil to 375ºF. You will need a candy or oil thermometer for this.
  • 3 Remove the Pillsbury™ Grands!™ biscuits from the can and cut out a hole using a small cookie cutter.
  • 4 Test to see if the oil is ready by using one of the donut holes.
  • 5 Add the biscuits, but not more than three at a time.
  • 6 Flip when they are golden brown.
  • 7 When golden brown on both sides, remove from oil and place on paper towel to soak up any extra oil.
  • 8 While donuts are cooling, make the glaze. Start with powdered sugar.
  • 9 Then add maple syrup.
  • 10 Add one cup diced apples.
  • 11 Add milk.
  • 12 Whisk together until all the ingredients are incorporated. The apples will still be in chunks.
  • 13 You can either dip your donut into the glaze or pour it over. I prefer the pour-over method. If you do the latter method, you'll want to have a wire rack and a baking pan underneath to catch the extra glaze.
  • 14 Add the bacon pieces to the glaze before it starts to harden.
  • 15 Let donuts sit while the glaze sets up.

Step By Step  

Mini donuts are already pretty great. But add apple, bacon, and maple and they're downright amazing!

As prepared by Baker Peabody,

One of the best things about snow days growing up was coming home to my mother making us fresh hot donuts.

For years I thought she made them from scratch – until she broke down and told me it was just biscuit dough. Hers were simply sprinkled with cinnamon sugar but I thought, "Why not really make the kiddos an afterschool treat of Maple Bacon Apple Mini Donuts?"
