How To Cut Donuts

If you don’t have a donut cutter, it’s still easy to cut donuts. You can use a drinking cup, canning jar or biscuit cutter to cut the large circle. Then use something small like an egg cup to cut the holes out of the center.

How To Make Donut Holes

Donut holes need to be kept to the size of a golf ball so that they bake properly. You can easily cut these out with a small, round cookie cutter. In fact, you can often get biscuit cutters in different-sized sets that are perfect for cutting donuts in general.

How To Make Donut Glaze

If you prefer glazed donuts to a frosted topping, it’s easy to make. Here’s is a recipe for donut glaze from the Food Network.
