  • In a dutch oven or saucepan, heat 2” of canola oil to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix granulated sugar with cinnamon. In a separate bowl, whisk powdered sugar and warm milk.
  • Lightly flour a flat surface area or cutting board. Separate the biscuits and roll flat with a rolling pin to about ½” thick. Use a 2” heart shaped cookie cutter to cut dough into small hearts.
  • Carefully drop the hearts into the canola oil and fry for 1 minute per side. Remove from oil and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain excess oil.
  • Place donuts on a wire rack over a cookie sheet or covered surface to catch any spills. Brush donuts with glaze, then dip both sides in cinnamon sugar mixture. It is best to do one at a time so the glaze does not set before dipping.
  • Repeat with all donuts.
  • To make the dip: Add cream cheese, strawberries, sugar, whipping cream, and vanilla extract to a food processor or blender. Pulse for 15 to 20 seconds, or until smooth.
  • Serve the mini heart shaped donuts with dip and enjoy!
