7 Mouthwatering Doughnuts Your Sweet Tooth Will Appreciate (Photos)

Autumn is right around the corner and guess what? Who cares?

While everyone is pumpkin-spicing everything in sight, picking apples and wearing booties, we're going to stay with more timeless pastimes: making, baking and consuming doughnuts.

Doughy or cakey, baked or fried.

If it's covered in sugar, has a hole in the center and you call it a doughnut... It's timeless perfection!

Sure, we can buy a doughnut from the corner store, but making our own is worth the effort.

When you make your own doughnuts, you have the right to the first and last doughnut out of the fryer (and really any doughnut in-between).

That's pretty priceless.

Check out these seven delicious doughnuts your sweet tooth will appreciate.
