Holiday baking season is upon us, and I couldn't be more excited! My daughter has enjoyed helping me bake treats for every occasion, and is looking forward to trying some new recipes. My family adores both sugar cookies and donuts, so I decided to combine the two in these Frosted Sugar Cookie Donuts with my secret ingredient, International Delight® Frosted Sugar Cookie Creamer! We like how you party™!

Not only are creamers a delicious addition to your morning cup of coffee or cocoa, but they are a delightful ingredient for fun holiday recipes! Last year I made Sugar Cookie Waffles using the International Delight® Frosted Sugar Cookie and my family couldn't get enough. So it was a given that I was going to use it again this year in some holiday baking. The International Delight® REESE’S Peanut Butter Cup creamer also caught my eye and I knew we had to try it!

You can find a variety of International Delight® seasonal coffee creamers like Frosted Sugar Cookie and Peppermint Mocha at Walmart in bunkers or on the refrigerated shelves in the dairy section. It just doesn’t feel like the holidays without a splash of seasonal flavor. Stock up and make that merriment last!

The key to baked donuts is the donut pan. They are pretty affordable, and are a lot of fun to use. You can spoon the donut batter in, or make it less messy by scooping your batter into a plastic bag and cutting a corner off to pipe it in! My best tip for using this pan is to grease it well, especially around the center. To keep the donut center from filling in, make sure not to over-fill the donut cavities. Filling them up 3/4 of the way works every time to keep that iconic donut center.

After baking, remove the donuts from the donut pan and leave on a wire rack to cool. The only difference between the two donut recipes I am sharing today is the flavor of creamer that I added. The REESE'S creamer is more chocolatey, so the donuts come out a little more brown than the Frosted Sugar Cookie. Plus, they both have a different hint of flavor. It's so fun to try different creamers with this recipe to come up with a whole new dessert each time!

While the donuts cool, mix up the glaze. By adding in creamers, you can take an average vanilla glaze up a notch with a punch of flavor. The Frosted Sugar Cookie creamer makes the glaze have even more of the sugar cookie flavor to make the donuts irresistible!

Dip the donut into the glaze, lift up and immediately put it on a plate or a wire rack. Easy enough, right?

Immediately add your sprinkles of choice. I love sugar cookies with lots of colorful sprinkles! Let the glaze set before devouring the donuts for the least-messy results.

To make your donuts a little more festive, just switch out the rainbow jimmies for some holiday sprinkles instead!

These donut holes aren't your average cake pops. No crumbling or mixing needed. I have an electric cake pop maker that cooks up cake batter into perfect balls! Simply pour the batter into the cake pop maker cavities, close the lid and let them cook for about 4-5 minutes.

Once the donut holes have cooled, dip them in a Frosted Sugar Cookie glaze and add some sprinkles! Get the taste of frosted sugar cookies and the texture of a perfectly baked donut all in one bite.
