The holiday season also brings with it my favorite kind of season at college - end of the semester. I am one of the few, fortunate souls who just have a million papers dues instead of a million finals. Because of this, I figured I'd surprise my 18th Century Women Writers Class with some End of the Semester Surprise Donuts!
We've been pretty much beating Pride and Prejudice to death so I thought we could all use a little something to keep us going.
I also had the perk of not having class until 2:50 today (seriously, isn't the end of the semester insane? My work day doesn't start today until 3pm. Who would've thought I could get away with that?) so I had the entire morning to test out my adorable, new Wilton Donut Pan. This was one of my Black Thursday steals from Michaels: the last one in the store for about $7.
I went ahead and used the Father's Day Donuts Recipe from awhile back, but with a little twist. I made an eggnog frosting instead of just plain ol' vanilla. I did mention that I love eggnog right?
Of course, for those who don't share my well-founded passion for eggnog, I frosted a few with chocolate as well. I topped them all off with some holiday sprinkles and ta-da! Holiday Donuts.
Again, the recipe for the donuts is here, (with the switch that you bake them at 400 for 7 minutes in the pan) but I've included the recipe for the Eggnog frosting/glaze below. I know the season is a busy one for most of us, but if you have the time to spare, these are definitely worth it.
Eggnog Frosting/Donut Glaze
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 tbsp eggnog
1. Measure out powdered sugar, then stir in eggnog until combined. Add more eggnog to smooth out consistency if needed.
