Buttery spirals with a pleasingly mild sourdough tang, they're soft on the inside, but sport a wonderfully crisp crust — think crescent roll. And, like a crescent roll, they're fun to unravel and enjoy bit by buttery bit!
Behold apple cider doughnuts, the surest sign of fall
Thirty-five miles northwest of Chicago is Long Grove, a town that’s earned considerable renown for its apple cider doughnuts. Of all the things your town can become synonymous with, apple cider doughnuts is pretty neat. These doughnuts were sold fresh at a shop called the Long Grove Apple Haus, and they were a revelation. Until I tasted it, I didn’t know adding apple cider to doughnut batter was possible. They were warm, fluffy, light as cotton, with autumnal flavors of apples and cinnamon.
