Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • 1 can regular biscuits (I didn't use the ones with layers)
  • vegetable or canola oil for frying


  1. In a small to medium frying pan (you can also use a deep fryer or dutch oven), heat the oil on medium heat.  

  2. Once the oil is fully heated, carefully place 2-3 biscuits in the oil.  Fry for 3 minutes on one side.  Flip and cook another 3 minutes on the other side.   

  3. Place the fried biscuits on a paper towel to absorb any grease.  Continue with the other biscuits until all are fried.

  4. Serve warm with apple butter.

Recipe Notes

  • Since temperatures can vary, check to make sure your biscuits are not burning during your first batch.  If they are, turn the heat down.
  • After the first batch is fried, check one to make sure they are cooked all the way through.  If not, place them back in the grease for another minute and adjust cooking time for the remaining biscuits.  
  • Some like to toss the fried biscuits in cinnamon and sugar before serving.
