Ingredients

  • 2 cups oil
  • 2 canisters of premade biscuits (like Pillsbury)
  • 1 can Lucky Leaf Lemon Premium Pie Filling
  • 1 C powdered sugar
  • 2 -5 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp meringue powder
  • dash salt
  • food coloring

Instructions

    Make your Easy Donuts

    1. Heat your oil to 375 F in a medium sized pot. You need the oil to be at least an inch deep in the pot. Use a candy thermometer to monitor the temperature.
    2. Open the canisters of busciuts and cut into egg shapes using a 2-inch cookie cutter. Roll the scraps up to make donut holes.
    3. Place the dount into the hot oil and fry for 1 minute on each side. Remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to a cooling rank with paper towels underneath. Cook all of the doughnuts.

    Prepare your Glaze

    1. Mix together the powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons milk, meringue powder and salt. Add more milk as necessary for your consistency. Separate the glaze and color with a few drops of food coloring. Transfer the colored glaze to baggies and seal closed. Set colored glazes aside.

    Fill the donuts.

    1. Add half the can of Lucky Leaf Lemon Pie Filling to a piping bag fitted with a Wilton 230 Bismark tip. Insert the tip into the side of the cooled doughnut and gently squeeze the filling into the doughnut while slowly removing the tip. Fill all the doughnuts.

    Decorate the filled Donuts

    1. Snip the corner off the baggies and let the kids decorate their Jelly Donuts! Allow 5 minutes for the glaze to dry and then devour!
