  • Unglazed Donuts
  • Stick Preztels
  • Green Tootsie Rolls

I baked donuts using a donut pan from Wilton and this Vanilla Glazed Baked Donut Recipe from Easy as Apple Pie.  I checked with our bakery to see if it is possible to buy unglazed donuts to use (if you don’t feel like making donuts) and they said if you order in advance they would leave them unglazed to use. So there’s that option.

Dipping apple donuts

Once the donuts were baked and cooled I followed the vanilla glaze recipe and dyed it red and green. Dip the top of the donut into the glaze and set on a cooling rack to let the drips drip.

While the glaze is setting, prepare the stem and leaves for the apples. Break pretzel sticks in half and mold little leaves out of green Tootsie Rolls.
