Notes

Biscuits: You can use any variety of biscuit dough for this recipe. We prefer the taste and texture of the flaky layers biscuits, but the buttermilk biscuits to tend to be easier to fill as they aren’t as likely to split apart.

Jelly: Look for jelly (made with fruit juices) and not jam (made with fruit chunks) as it will be easier to pipe. Use any flavor jellly you prefer.

Topping: For a healthier version, brush the donuts with melted butter using a pastry brush and sprinkle with the sugar. Dunking in the butter and sugar is delicious, but does make for a thick sugar coating and definitely adds a lot more fat and calories.
