LouAnn's Doughnut Cookies

 Autumn leaves are falling and "LouAnn's busy stirring a big bowl of batter!"  Carrie Finison's picture book, Dozens of Doughnuts is a delightful read this time of year with your littles!  We can never get enough of Brianne Farley's illustrations of cheery doughnuts and LouAnn's expressions! My girls love counting the doughnuts and of course telling us which one is their favorite!

Finison came up with a couple of adorable recipes!  We just tested LouAnn's Doughnut Cookie recipe.  The addition of nutmeg combined with the apple cider icing create a lovely little cookie reminiscent of the apple cider doughnuts found at farm-stands this time of year!   My girls had a blast decorating theirs like doughnuts with colored icing and sprinkles!
Little hands can help with the measuring, mixing, rolling and decorating!
Happy Autumn Baking!
