Maple Bacon Doughnuts

Sometimes I just don’t feel like dealing with the “difficult to work with” dough of homemade doughnuts but I still crave them nonetheless. My solution is making doughnuts out of biscuit dough. Using to create doughnuts is the most genius thing ever! They taste incredible! You get everything from a doughnut you want but its a much easier process.
