Cookies and Cream Donuts

These are obscene and ridiculous and everything wrong and right in this world. These are cookies and cream donuts. Donuts, who as if they weren’t enough on their own, needed chocolaty creamy bits folded into them and then a blanket of cream and crunched up Oreo cookies spread over the top of them. mm hmm.

I’m sorry. I really have no defense except to say that I love donuts. And I love cookies and cream just about anything.

So when I saw Cookies and Cream pieces at the store, I just sort of melted down and bought them (I BLAME HERSHEYS!!)

When Pete came home, he just sort of looked at me like to make sure that I was ok. (Turns out I had chocolate crumbs all over the front of my shirt.) But the girls thought they were great! They helped mix, bake and frost to their delight. (Please note that Pia is still wearing her witches costume from Halloween).

Either spoon the batter into the prepared pan, or transfer the batter to a Ziploc or piping bag, snip the end and pipe into the donut pan (a little neater this way).
Bake the donuts until just cooked through and golden on top 10-12 minutes.

While the donuts are cooling, make the glaze by whisking the cream, vanilla and powdered sugar together.

Dip the cooled donuts in the glaze until they have a nice thick coating. Generously sprinkle on the crushed oreo chunks and crumbs.
