There is no one more eager than my little girl in the kitchen. She is always asking to help me in any way she can. Can I cut this mamma? Can I stir this mamma? Mamma, do you need help with that? She has such a heart to help.
So, as the fall season starts, I thought she and I could take some time to make homemade donuts and apple cider one afternoon. Cinnamon sugar rolled donuts served warm is a love language for both of us and what better way to ring in the fall season than with apple cider tea!
Have you ever made homemade donuts? Well, if not, you're in for a treat and some fun! Grab a kid or two and invite them into the kitchen to help you with the rolling and dipping! This has some extra steps but the results are well worth it. If you're looking to cut a corner or two or simplify the donut recipe, instead of using homemade dough, you can use canned biscuits.
Makes about 12 donuts
20 minutes (plus 2 hours resting)

You can use cold or hot tea, but this recipe calls for a cold brewed tea! I used this cold coffee brewer by Primula and instead of using ground coffee, I used tea in the middle filter which filters out particles that cause bad flavor and brewed it all night in the refrigerator. I love products that make your life easier and this is definitely one of them! This is now a staple in my house for brewed coffee and tea!
5 minutes (plus brewing overnight)
This will be so fun with you this fall! Take some time out this weekend and enjoy this treat with someone special!
