These doughnuts are gluten free and drizzled with just the right amount of cream cheese icing, which is sure to make everyone smile and reach for another. Ditch the batch of outplayed cookies and make these for the big man in red instead!
Despite everything this year has thrown at us, we’re making it a point to hold on to our beloved holiday traditions more than ever (and even starting some new ones!), because that’s what makes this time of year so special. So, whatever you do, dough-nut stop believing in the magic of the holidays, especially the sweets!
Nothing gets you in the holiday spirit like the warm and cozy flavors of the season, and gingerbread is always at the very top of that list. These gingerbread doughnuts are the perfect treat to bake for your loved ones or roommates to snack on while unwrapping gifts or watching Christmas movies.
