Hip hip hooray for apple season!

Apple Cider Donut Holes

adapted from Lara Ferroni

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons cinnamon

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/2 cup superfine sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 large egg yolks

1/4 cup apple cider

1/4 cup buttermilk

Vegetable oil for frying

1. In a small bowl whisk the flours, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl and set aside.

2. Using an electric mixer cream the butter and sugar, then add the egg yolks and mix well until pale and fluffy. Then, add in the vanilla, cider and buttermilk. Slowly stir in the dry ingredients until a sticky dough forms. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

3. Pour 2-inches of oil in a heavy-bottomed pot and heat to 300F (use a candy thermometer to check the temperature). Pinch off 2 1/2-inch sized balls of the dough and drop in the hot oil, turning them once so each side cooks for about 1 minute. Use a ladle to spoon out the cooked donut holes and place on a plate lined witha paper towel. Let cool slightly then roll in cinnamon sugar, or desired glaze, before eating!
