Cinnamon Sugar Donut Holes

Cinnamon Sugar may be one of my all time favorite flavor combinations. I don’t know if I just love the flavor on it’s own or more of what it represents. Whenever I smell cinnamon I immediately think of Fall days. I love everything associated with this time of year like the temperatures and the sweaters, but I especially adore the food.

I was never a huge donut gal, but there’s something special about a warm cup of coffee/tea with a fresh hot donut. Since I can’t eat the usual store bought donut, I’ve had to improvise and make my own. This recipe took a little more testing than I’m used to, but I was not about to give up on this delicious cinnamon sugar combo. I think this final recipe turned out perfectly. I hope you guys love it as much as I do!
