Gingerbread Donuts

Christmas may be over but I still haven’t taken off my furry reindeer slippers! I have really been loving spending time with my family curled up in sweatpants, drinking endless cups of coffee in Cleveland. I hope everyone has been enjoying family time during this holiday as well! Along with all the coffee drinking, I haven’t stopped baking all of my favorite Christmas treats!

You how people feel about pumpkin spice during fall? Well that’s me with gingerbread. I’m actually not the biggest fan of pumpkin in general but gingerbread has me hooked. It all started with my great Grandma Estelle’s gingerbread man recipe which is a secret 😉 but these gingerbread donuts come pretty darn close.
