  • For The Candied Pecans
  • 1 1/2 cups pecan pieces
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • For the Donuts
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp butter melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp honey
  • For the Glaze
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp International Delight® Cold Stone Creamery™ Sweet Cream coffee creamer
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar


  • To Make The Pecans
  • Heat a medium-sized skillet over medium heat. Add in and whisk the butter and brown sugar together until they're melted together. Allow the mixture to simmer for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove the skillet from heat. Add in the pecans, tossing to evenly coat.
  • Turn them out onto a sheet of parchment paper, spread them out, and allow them to harden as they cool.
  • To Make The Donuts
  • Add all of the 'dry' ingredients to the bowl of a stand mixer. Use a fork to stir them all together until evenly incorporated.
  • Add in all the wet ingredients and mix on low speed until everything's come together and the batter is smooth.
  • Prepare a donut pan by spraying it with non stick spray and then pipe the batter into the wells, stopping just below the top.
  • Bake the donuts at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove the donut pan from the oven and let the donuts rest/cool for a minute or two. Pop the still warm donuts out of the pan and transfer them to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  • To Make The Glaze
  • Heat a medium-sized skillet over medium heat. Add in the butter and brown sugar, stirring until they're both melted and the mixture's smooth.
  • Reduce the heat to low and stir in the creamer and honey. Allow the glaze to gently simmer for 5-6 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Turn off the heat, and immediately stir in the vanilla and powdered sugar, whisking until all lumps are gone and the mixture's once again smooth.
  • The glaze will harden as it cools. Working with one at a time, quickly dip the tops of each donut into the glaze and immediately sprinkle with candied pecans.
  • Return the glazed donuts to the wire racks while the glaze cools completely.
  • Serve immediately, or store them in airtight tupperware for up to 48 hours before enjoying.
