1/3 Photos of Applejack Donuts
When I was little, my Dad would do my Mom a favor and run to the local bakery and pick up donuts and pastries for the kids so she wouldn't have to deal with breakfast; did he ever think about the sugar rush? Never mind; the teachers had to deal with that! The bakery he went to served donuts they called applejacks, and I always loved them way more than the chocolate covered cream filled yeast donuts! They also served superb bear claws and apple fritters! This is as close as I can come to their "applejack" recipe. They were always still warm when we got them from Daddy's truck into our stomachs! Yummy breakfast treats for weekends or vacations!
