Instructions

For the pumpkin spice donuts:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the heavy cream, pumpkin pureƩ, melted butter and vanilla extract until smooth. Working in batches, add the wet mixture into the dry mixture using a rubber spatula until a thick batter has formed.
  2. Spray a donut baking pan with cooking spray. Pour all the batter into a frosting/pastry piping bag or a gallon plastic food storage bag with a corner cut off and pipe the batter into the donut baking pan, filling each one about 3/4 of the way full.
  3. Bake the donuts for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Le the donuts rest for a couple minutes in the pan, then turn them out onto a cooling rack.

For the cinnamon-sugar coating:

  1. After the donuts have been baked and cooled slightly, mix together the cinnamon and sugar in a medium bowl or large plate. Pour the melted butter into a similar sized bowl or plate. Working with one donut at a time, coat the donut on all sides with the melted butter, then toss in the cinnamon sugar until coated completely. Transfer back to the cooling rack or a baking sheet to set. Continue this process until all the donuts have been coated.

For the white chocolate topping:

  1. Melt the white chocolate melting wafers according to package instructions. Using a spoon, evenly split the melted white chocolate amongst the donuts and gently spoon it over the tops of the donuts and let it cascade down the sides. If you have any cinnamon sugar left over from the coating, you can sprinkle the tops of the melted white chocolate with some of it for a garnish. Enjoy!
