Glazed Doughnut Muffins

Share

You probably would not have guessed that I am not a BIG sweets eater.

Typically, I prefer savory to sweet.

Sure, I enjoy dessert.  Especially if it’s a fruit pie.

When I snack, I will usually choose salty.

One exception – doughnuts.

I have ALWAYS loved doughnuts.

HUGE weakness for sweet, fried, glazed dough.

When I saw this recipe at Lil ‘Luna, I knew I would be making them.

Problem – would I be able to eat just one?

Solution – Teacher Appreciation Day.

Tomorrow is our final day of school, and it is also the day we celebrate our teachers.
Luckily, we will be sharing our Glazed Doughnut Muffins – now I won’t be able to eat all 12
     ~yes they are that good!
