Apple Cider Donuts in the DMV

Apple’s are a wonderful thing. Some people even say they “keep the doctor away.” While the latter may not be totally true, it is true that adding a little apple to something, without fail, makes it better. So this Apple Day (who knew?) we’re highlighting one of the apple’s greatest creations: The Apple Cider Donut. Our family has been obsessed with these fluffy, sweet treats since the first leaves stroked the ground this year.
