easy baked donuts with vanilla glazed icing by deliciously sprinkled

These baked glazed donuts are seriously about the easiest way there is to make a donut. The best part is that these donuts are baked, no frying mess to clean up and because they’re baked that means you can have more then one because they’re healthier, right!?

To make these delicious donuts, I used Pillsbury Grands homestyle biscuit dough. To create a donut shape, I used a small round cookie cutter or you could use a shot glass to make a hole in the middle of the dough. With the leftover dough, I rolled it up into balls, creating donut holes along with my donut rings. I made a simple homemade vanilla glaze icing and top them with SPRINKLES!

These were so easy and quick to make and they satisfied my donut craving. I’m definitely going to try making these again. Next time, I think I’ll roll them in sugar.
