Doughnuts: The Ultimate Hanukkah Miracle

'Tis the season...for frying up delicious Hanukkah treats. We love latkes—we really love latkes—but sometimes we like to celebrate the festival of lights with something sweet. Sufganiyot, round jelly doughnuts topped with powdered sugar, are a Hanukkah tradition, but we'd happily welcome any of these deep-fried desserts to our holiday table:

Peanut Butter and Jelly Doughnuts
These tasty treats are a fun twist on America’s favorite sandwich.

Malasadas (Portuguese Doughnuts)
We think these bite-sized fritters from Top Chef winner Stephanie Izard are delicious served with ice cream, alongside a mug of coffee, or simply on their own.

Bourbon-Glazed Doughnuts
At Anthony David's, these bourbon-laced beauties sell out on a regular basis. Chef Anthony Pino got us hooked when he cooked these at the Beard House. They taste best right out of the fryer, so serve them right away.

Chocolate–Rosemary Bombolini
Bombolini are the Italian analogue of doughnut holes. This version from Beard House chef Matt Kelley is filled with a chocolate ganache that’s enlivened with the elegant, earthy flavor of rosemary.
