The Frosted Sugar Cookie Donut is a “frosted donut with cookie dough flavored filling, topped with crumbled frosted sugar cookies.” Cookie dough has been surging in popularity. From edible cookie dough available in the refrigerated section to cookie dough cafés, this flavorful treat is ok to eat. Adding that delicious cookie dough inside a donut sounds like the ultimate indulgence. With the textural crunch from the frosted sugar cookie, the donut should be a perfect bite.

The second donut, the Gingerbread Cookie Donut, is “caramel frosted donut sprinkled with gingerbread cookie topping.” Warm spices are popular during the holidays because they offer a sense of comfort against the chill. Combining the classic gingerbread holiday cookie with caramel should be a delightful combination.
