Three words: Pumpkin spice season.

Ladies and gentlemen, break out your Ugg boots. It’s pumpkin spice season. 

Now that pumpkin spice is in full effect, I thought I’d make a batch of donuts that reflected those fall flavors. I’m not really one for lattes, so I’ll take these pumpkin spice donuts instead.

This October has brought a lot of joy into my life, and I’m going to keep the momentum going with some delicious desserts. These pumpkin spice donuts are a quick and fun fall treat that will take you back to pumpkin patches and hayrides.

Bring on the cinnamon sugar

You can glaze these however you want, or you can simply do a coat of cinnamon sugar. The cinnamon sugar coat is my preferred method, so you can focus on the awesome delights of spicy pumpkin flavors.

Pumpkin spice and everything nice
