Donut Balls with Tart Lemon Glaze

You know those tubes of pre-made biscuit dough in the dairy department at the grocery store….

….the less expensive ones that are either buttermilk or plain flavor?

That’s what these delicious donut balls are made from. 

This recipe isn’t very fancy schmancy.

But it’s simple as pie and has just 4 ingredients.

And best of all, these donut balls are so good with this lemony glaze. 

Really good.

If you don’t have lemons or powdered sugar on hand, they are also delish rolled in granulated sugar and cinnamon.

You may want to have milk or coffee on had to go along with them too….just for good measure.

They can be made for breakfast, dessert, or a fun snack.

Hope you’re having a great day and thank you so much for stopping by!

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Pre-made biscuit dough, 1 lemon, powdered sugar, and canola oil
 

Here’s how to make it.

For the Donut Balls:

Add a paper towel to a large plate and set aside.

Tear each biscuit dough piece in half,

and roll into a ball.

Add the canola oil to a small saucepan.

Heat the saucepan on low to medium heat.

After about a minute when the oil is hot, add 4 of the biscuit dough balls to the oil.

They’ll cook fast so watch them very closely.

Turn them with tongs as they cook so that all sides turn a light golden color.

Once all sides turn a light golden color, remove them from the pan and on to the plate with the paper towel.

Continue the process to cook the rest of them. 

If they start to get brown too quickly when added to the oil, turn the heat down just a bit.

Be sure to keep a close eye on the oil so that it doesn’t get too hot.

Once all of the donut balls are done, set them aside for a moment while making the glaze.

For the Glaze:

Zest the lemon….

….and add the zest to a small bowl.

Then,

add the juice from the lemon in the bowl.

Add the powdered sugar,

and mix together until smooth.

Next,

put the donut balls on a serving plate…..

….and….

…..drizzle the lemon glaze over the top of each donut ball.

sooo delish.

Serve immediately while the donut balls are still warm.

Enjoy!

You may want to take a petite bite out of these yummies….

….or pop the whole thing in your mouth….

…either way they are soooo good.
