It is finally that time of year again when pumpkins are popping up everywhere, leaves are turning, the weather is getting cold and pumpkin spice is in the air. Well, sort of. It definitely is if you are making these Baked Pumpkin Brioche Donuts with Vanilla Cream Cheese Icing! These yeast donuts are baked but can be fried, if you’re up to it. Brioche donuts contain significantly more eggs and a whole lot more butter than regular yeast donuts which makes them richer and just, well, more delicious in my opinion. These babies here also contain pumpkin and pumpkin spice – the perfect treat for Halloween and Thanksgiving, or, really any time during this cozy season. This icing is one of my favorite – if not my favorite. Instead of simple sugar and water, or milk, this recipe has added butter and cream cheese which gives it some of that yummy creamy perfect cream cheese flavor, especially if you are using Challenge Cream Cheese, made of incredibly fresh, real milk and cream from Californian cows.
