A winner will be chosen at random and contacted, and we'll post the results here at Feastie. In the meantime, I've got some yummy Thanksgiving-inspired recipes to share. Being a CA transplant in the DC area, I try to appreciate every second of the fall season. First of all because we don't really have seasons where I grew up, and secondly because it's one of the most beautiful times of year in the Midatlantic. So I'm enjoying all of the traditional fall activities around here, as well as the seasonal food. Especially the food. I had my first apple cider donut recently at Butler's Orchard, and wow. I had no idea - I mean, I like donuts as much as the next person, but I don't eat them very often, so I had no idea what I was missing. It was SO. GOOD. The cup of hot spiced apple cider didn't hurt, either. I wasn't planning on attempting to replicate that donut at home, but when I came across this recipe for baked apple cider doughnuts at The Kitchn, I figured I'd give them a try - I know donuts are fried, not baked, but really, how can these possibly be anything but delicious? Since I don't have a donut pan I made "donut holes" instead - mini muffins. They're so good - and a bit healthier than the fried variety - you've got to make these. If you guys like this recipe, try my baked pumpkin spice donut holes - very similar but with a bit of a pumpkin pie feel!
