Serves Makes 6 donuts

2 cups of powdered sugar
1/4 cup whiskey
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoons of heavy cream
Pinch of salt
6 homemade or store-bought donuts
1 cup walnuts, toasted and finely chopped


In a medium-size mixing bowl, whisk sugar, whiskey, maple syrup, heavy cream and salt together 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 it 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 chopped walnuts.
