  • Swap out the cinnamon and sugar for a glaze! To make a glaze, whisk powdered sugar and milk to the desired consistency and then dip your donuts. You can even add sprinkles if you choose. 
  • To cut the circle you can use a small biscuit cutter or even a very small circular glass, like a shot glass.

Storage

Everytime we have made these donuts we never seem to have any leftovers! If you find yourself with leftovers, you will want to store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. Over time they will begin to dry out. 

You will want to warm them back up for a few seconds in the microwave.
