Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

True Life: I'm obsessed with donuts.

Like really, it's my weakness. And this year for Christmas I asked for a donut pan to fan the flame. It's been very good to me. 

I stumbled upon this recipe from Camille Styles (s/o Austin local), and it was SO amazing! I will definitely be making them again. They were a big hit with Connor too - that's when you know it's good.
