It's my favorite time of the year: fall! As soon as I hear that my local pick-your-own farms have apples ready for picking, I pack my family up and we are in the orchards. I just adore the smell of the apples. This time of the year really evokes feelings of being warm and cozy. It's pure comfort.

Apple Cider Donuts Recipe Directions

  1. To make the donuts, separate the biscuits on a flat surface. Cut out the centers of each biscuit with a small round cookie cutter.
  2. Heat about an inch of oil in a heavy-bottomed skillet over medium high heat.
  3. Fry donuts about 3 at a time, do not crowd the pan.
  4. Fry until the donuts are a golden brown color, about 3-4 minutes on each side.
  5. Transfer to paper towels to catch excess grease and let cool.
  6. While donuts are cooling, make the cinnamon sugar. Whisk together sugar and cinnamon in a bowl the same size as the donuts.
  7. Once donuts have cooled, pour apple cider into a shallow bowl.
  8. Dip each donut into the apple cider and then coat both sides with the cinnamon sugar.
  9. Lay flat on a wire rack to shake off excess.
  10. Enjoy with a mug of apple cider!
