Do Canned Biscuit Donuts Store Well

Not really. Just like any other “fried” food, it is best served fresh. If you put any sugar on the donuts it kind of melts as time goes on.

 

These canned biscuit donuts are best when served warm. You can save leftovers but they won’t taste near as good as day one.

What to Do With Donut Hole Dough

Cook it of course! Make little bite-size donut holes for kiddos or yourself. Just lower cooking time so these smaller dough pieces don’t overcook.

Which Is Better Air Fryer or Ninja Foodi

What’s amazing here is both machines work the same. The Ninja Foodi is an Instant Pot and Air Fryer in one essentially. You simply change out the lid for each method of cooking you want.

 

So if you are looking to invest, just think would you benefit from a pressure cooker as well, or maybe just want Air Fryer only. Either way, both the Air Fryer and the Foodi are both highly recommended in my book!

I have made these several times now in my 8 qt. Ninja Foodi. However, I find that 4 minutes is too short of a cooking time. My first batch was basically raw dough consistency, so I've extended the time to 7 minutes, flipping them over halfway through.

Something fun I've done too is to try the various "flavors" of biscuits. Our favorite has been the honey butter flavor, and I use almond extract instead of the vanilla in the frosting.

YUM!!

Is this a recipe? Buying something already made and cooking it? Can you make it with ingredients, like flour etc ? I think that would be a recipe.
