It's Thanksgiving! It's Hanukkah! All at once! With this momentous overlap of food holidays, why decide on one type of cuisine? These jelly doughnuts, inspired by the Hanukkah specialty sufganiyot, have a Thanksgiving flair thanks to a cranberry sauce "jelly" inside.

Are you sad that they don't include turkey, like some infamous versions in bakeries and around the internet? Don't be. These doughnuts might not have the shock value, but they taste good enough that you'll actually enjoy every bite, with a sweet-tart cranberry filling which is perfectly complemented by a snowy dusting of confectioners' sugar on top.
