Pumpkin Pie Filled Donuts

Maple-iced donuts filled with a rich, sweet pumpkin spice puree? Yep. Its happening now. In your kitchen. This recipe is to-die delish and takes less than 30 minutes to make!

Ingredients

For the frosting

3
cups powdered sugar
3
tablespoons butter, melted
1
tablespoon milk
3/4
teaspoon maple extract (Mapeline preferred)

For the donuts

1 1/2
cup pumpkin puree
1
tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2
cup sugar
2
tablespoons butter, melted
1
tube Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Frozen Flaky Layers Biscuits
Vegetable or canola oil for frying

Directions

  • 1 In a medium bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons melted butter, milk, and maple extract to create the icing. If needed, add more powdered sugar or milk to get the consistency equal to a soft, spreadable frosting.
  • 2 In a small bowl, stir together pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, sugar, and 2 tablespoons of butter.
  • 3 Prepare the frying oil by placing it into a deep-sided skillet and bringing it to medium-low heat over the stove.
  • 4 Open the Pillsbury™ biscuits. Gently pull each in half, press down the center of the biscuits, and fill with 2 tablespoons of pumpkin puree mixture. Place the top back on the biscuit and press closed with a fork.
  • 5 Fry donuts in oil. They should fry on medium-low heat until the are a dark, golden brown to ensure the center cooks and isnt doughy when you pull it apart for eating!
  • 6 As soon as the top and bottom of the donuts are fried, remove them carefully from the hot oil with a slotted spoon, transfer to a parchment-lined drying rack, and spoon a dollop of frosting right on top of the hot donut. Smooth slightly with a spoon. Allow frosting to firm up slightly before enjoying!

Step By Step  

Pumpkin season! Pumpkin season! Are there any greater words in the entire world?!

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen,

The moment that coffee shops add pumpkin lattes to the menu, you know it's time to grab cans of pumpkin puree and start baking.

Pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bars, pumpkin pies...

And now, with this gloriously simple (and crazy pumpkinlicious) recipe, you can have a batch of Pumpkin Pie Filled Donuts hot and in your hands…in just 30 minutes!

 

Pumpkin Pie Filled Donuts

First, gather the goods.

 

Pumpkin Pie Filled Donuts

Peel your flaky biscuits right in half, opening them and laying them flat on your workspace.

 

Pumpkin Pie Filled Donuts

Press a little space in the center of the biscuits, making room for pumpkin pie puree.

 

Pumpkin Pie Filled Donuts

Drop in that pumpkin! Two tablespoons of the spiced mixture is just about perfect.

 

Pumpkin Pie Filled Donuts

Close the edges of your donut with a fork. Make sure you've pressed it all in place – we can't have that delicious pumpkin filling leaking out!

 

Pumpkin Pie Filled Donuts

Place the donuts in hot oil. Well, not actually hot-hot. You want to heat it to medium-low on your stove for the perfect amount of heat that will cook all the way through to the center, keeping your donuts from getting dough-y, and warming up that gorgeous pumpkin center. Set to cool on paper towels.

 

Pumpkin Pie Filled Donuts

Spread your maple icing right on top. Finger licking highly recommended.

 

Let your donuts sit for just a moment. You want the icing to harden up a bit before biting into them.

 

Pumpkin Pie Filled Donuts

Sprinkle, if'n you want. Otherwise, prepare a glass of milk!

You have a batch of fallish donuts to enjoy!
