Love donuts?

What if I said you can make warm and delicious donuts in just five minutes using your air fryer?! Yep, they are that quick to make and are definitely worth getting out of bed for. 🍩

The secret to these magical donuts is store bought biscuit dough and an air fryer! I recently purchased an Air Fryer Xl and have used it just about every day since!

Hip Tip: Use a biscuit cutter or a shot glass (or even a plastic disposable medicine cup – that’s what Collin used) to cut holes in the middle of each biscuit. Don’t forget to cook all your donut holes at the end too!

Additional Notes

Recipe adapted from

These donuts are super yummy!

I surprised my kids one school morning with these, and they said, “What, mom’s making donuts on a weekday?!”  Let’s just say they were a hit and great for an occasional treat.

We rolled some in powdered sugar and some in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. Feel free to get creative and make a glaze or frosting if desired.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
