Serves 6 donuts

2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup cinnamon-flavored whiskey (such as Fireball)
3 tablespoons apple cider
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Pinch of salt
6 homemade or store-bought donuts
Pepita seeds, toasted, for topping
Freshly grated nutmeg, for topping


In a medium-size mixing bowl, whisk the powdered sugar with the whiskey, apple cider, pumpkin pie spice and salt until smooth.

Working one at a time, dip a donut into the glaze then hold it over the bowl for a few second to let any excess drip off. Flip the donut and place glazed-side up onto a cooling rack placed over a cookie sheet. Repeat with the rest of the donuts.

While the donuts are still slightly wet, sprinkle with pepita seeds and nutmeg.
