I broke out the pumpkin.

Yes, I know it is still August and it has been in the 90’s again this week.

Does that mean I am rushing Fall to get here?
Kind of…you see Fall is my absolute favorite season of all.
The cooler weather, the smells, the bonfires, the jeans, the hoodies,
the leaves…should I keep going???

Plus, once the kids go back to school,
it signals the end of summer in my brain.
They are in school, so no more summer sun and fun.
Might as well bring on the best season of all.

I know that there are some who hate to see summer go…
don’t get me wrong.  I love summer too!
But I happen to LOVE Fall quite a bit more:-)

When we were on vacation a few weeks ago, we had donuts for breakfast.
Dunkin Donuts to be exact.
Oh, how I love their chocolate cream filled powdered donut!
It has been my favorite for many, many years.

Did you know they now have an Oreo donut with cream filling?
Let’s just say it gave the chocolate cream filled one a run for its money.

Yes, I ate two cream filled donuts for breakfast in one day morning…fine about 5 minutes.
I’m thinking the beach running that I did while I was there was a very good thing.

So, as soon as we got home I bought some Oreos and was all set to make a home version…
but then I saw the can of pumpkin in the cupboard just staring at me all sad like,
and the wheels just started spinning!!!

These Pumpkin Oreo Donuts are one of my favorites…right now anyway:-)
Pumpkin goodness mixed with Oreo goodness…match made in heaven!!!!

Pumpkin Donuts with Oreo crumbs and white chocolate topping


For the Donuts
1/4 c. butter, softened
1/3 c. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. applesauce
1/2 c. canned pumpkin
1/3 c. vanilla yogurt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. flour
1/4 c. chocolate cookie crumbs
For the Topping
4 oz. white chocolate candy coating (CandiQuik)
1 tsp. shortening
1/2 c. chocolate cookie crumbs


  1. Cream the butter and sugar. Add the applesauce, pumpkin, vanilla, and yogurt and mix until creamy. In a bowl, sift together the baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, flour, and cookie crumbs. Stir into the creamed mixture gently.
  2. Place the donut batter in a ziplock bag and cut the tip off. Spray the mini donut pan with non stick spray and fill each cavity at least 3/4 full. Bake at 325* for 10 minutes. Let cool in pan for a few minutes before removing to wire rack to cool completely.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, heat the white chocolate coating with the shortening for 30 seconds and stir. Repeat again for 20 seconds and stir. Dip the tops of the donuts into the melted chocolate and sprinkle with cookie crumbs. Makes 26 mini donuts.


Only dip a few donuts at a time before sprinkling. The chocolate will set up and the crumbs won’t stick if you wait too long.

    I’m with you–fall is my absolute favorite season. Nothing beats the turning of the leaves, the crisp, cool weather…and baking with pumpkin! Aaah, these donuts look amazing. I never thought of pairing Oreos and pumpkin (not sure why–pumpkin goes with everything, if you ask me!)…what a great idea!! I’m loving these!

    You’re making me want a donut pan sooooooo badly. Good grief. Like I need another option of treats to work off! :) Love your photo composition, by the way.

    I went to SIX grocery stores in Aruba last week looking for pumpkin. No dice. Trust me – first thing I’m making at home in CA next week is something with pumpkin. These look crazy good and so moist!

    I have not tried the oreo donuts at Dunkin’ but I have to admit that I, too, LOVE the chocolate cream filled donuts!! Luckily, not many of the stores actually have them. I might have to give these pumpkin donuts a try!

    Uh, these look crazy good, girl! I LOVE pumpkin and I totally went crazy and made two pumpkin treats today, one spice coffee cake, and tomorrow I’m totally making pumpkin dog treats… I can’t get enough! These donuts look incredible and I can’t wait to try them! The Oreos are such a fun twist, too :)
