This recipe is so easy. I found it on the Pillsbury website and decided to give it a try. The recipe says to use a baster but I think it would so much easier to use a disposable pastry bag and tip. The baster was a little hard to get the jelly in and out of.
Cheaters Jelly Doughnuts
6 tbsps butter, melted
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup raspberry jelly
1 (12 ounce) can refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (10 in a can)
Heat oven to 375º.
In a bowl, melt butter in microwave. In another small bowl, mix together the cinnamon and sugar. In yeat another bowl, stir jelly until it’s smooth. Place a piece of foil on the tip of the baster so the jelly won’t drip out. Spoon the jelly in the baster and replace top. Using a pastry bag and tip would be much easier.
Bake biscuits according to the directions on the can. Immediately dip each biscuit into melted butter and coat all sides of the biscuit. Roll in sugar/cinnamon mixture, coating all sides.
Remove foil from tip of bulb and insert into the side of each biscuit. Squeeze a small amount of jelly into the center. You may need to refill the baster with jelly.
Serve warm or cool.
