Set your stove to HIGH and add the oil to the pan. Cut the biscuit dough into quarters and roll into balls. Once the oil reaches 375 F fry the biscuit mix in batches of 8, flipping to insure even cooking. Once nice and golden brown, remove the doughnuts from the oil and transfer to a paper lined plate. Top with powdered sugar and cinnamon and enjoy! Easy!!!
