Versatile Recipe

I love recipes that make use of pantry staples. This pumpkin cookie donut is no exception. It puts a cake mix to work to create a dessert that tastes so good that no one would believe it was made with a cake mix! The pumpkin puree compliments the vanilla cake mix perfectly.

This is also a versatile fall dessert. It works for after dinner at home, or present it as the star of your Thanksgiving dessert spread. You can top this with a variety of goodies like apple pie filling, fresh sliced pears, cinnamon sprinkles, or even a nut topping if you wish. We like the Pumpkin Cookie Donut dessert topped with pears, but I will definitely be experimenting with other ideas!

Easy Fall Dessert To Make

If you like pumpkin donuts or pumpkin bread, chances are that you will love this easy dessert.  You will also love that the cookie donut base only takes 4 ingredients to create. 

To make the hole in the centre of this pumpkin dessert that makes it look like a giant donut, you will need to use a wide rimmed glass, or maybe a wide mouth mason jar. I would encourage you to keep the centre you cut out too, because who can resist a fresh donut hole?

Icing and Toppings

You can make homemade icing, or use the canned variety. Whatever you have on hand, or like the best will work just fine. When you make this, I hope you come back to let me know how you topped the pumpkin cookie donut. Apples or peaches sound so good too!
