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!
First, gather the goods.
Peel your flaky biscuits right in half, opening them and laying them flat on your workspace.
Press a little space in the center of the biscuits, making room for pumpkin pie puree.
Drop in that pumpkin! Two tablespoons of the spiced mixture is just about perfect.
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!
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.
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.
Sprinkle, if'n you want. Otherwise, prepare a glass of milk!
You have a batch of fallish donuts to enjoy!
