 Apple Cider Donuts
Summer mornings make me want to cover my head and go back to sleep.

Winter mornings are even worse! I just want to snooze and snuggle under the covers until noon. The only thing (besides a dog jumping on my chest) that gets me moving is knowing I have a yummy breakfast planned.

These apple cider donuts are one of my favorites for Fall. They start out with a simple biscuit dough making them perfect for a lazy weekend or a chilly morning.
