Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

Random-ish story, but one of my favorite things to do in the fall is go apple picking. I love dressing up in my favorite cold day outfit, feeling like my best self, and paying a little too much money to take a bag of apples home. This past weekend I went to a pumpkin patch that featured apple picking and a corn maze and I felt like a little kid again. The smells reminded me of being with my family back home and it brought a smile to my face.

So, that little trip inspired these! I took my donut hole recipe and pumpkin-fied it. I topped it with a coating of cinnamon sugar and it did not disappoint. I hope you guys like it as much as I do! Happy baking and happy fall friends 🙂
