Week #3 Pumpkin Spice Donuts

We were featured TWICE this week!!!

Planned in Pencil

Craft Frenzy Friday

Thank you so much to Planned in Pencil and Craft Dictator for the features!!
Very flattering!!

On to the real reason we are all here.... its Week #3 of
Pumpkin Fall Fridays!! And this week we are making Pumpkin Spice Donuts!

As I've mentioned before, I am a Gold Card-holding member of Starbucks,
and I rack up the stars extra fast during the Fall (and Christmas) seasons
thanks to the availability of my beloved Pumpkin Spice Lattes!!

And any chance I get to fit this wonderful fall taste into another recipe,
I take it gladly! So when I saw these Pumpkin Spice Donuts
inspired by A Step In The Journey I knew I had to try them!

The original recipe requires a mini muffin tin which I did not have,
so I made them in a regular muffin tin. I also doubled the batch
in order to feed the army of Young Life leaders-in-training
who would be feasting on these sugary sweets!

This recipe is for one batch which makes about 24 donuts.
