Please post your children's Halloween costumes and party ideas.

Does you child prefer sweet or spooky?

For party treats, consider these pumpkin mini doughnuts. They disappeared faster than a vampire at morning's light.

Mini Pumpkin Doughnuts

Dough
 1 7/8 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
 1/2 teaspoon salt
 1 teaspoon cinnamon
 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
 1/2 teaspoon allspice
 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
 1/3 cup vegetable oil
 1/2 cup brown sugar
 1 egg
 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
 1/2 cup whole milk
 1/2 cup butter, melted
 2/3 cup sugar
1-2 tablespoons cinnamon

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Have a mini doughnut pan out.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and spices. Set aside.
 Whisk together oil, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, pumpkin and milk. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the mixture and stir until just combined. Do not over mix or your doughnuts will be tough.
Fill a zip-top baggie or plastic bag with batter. Cut off corner to about the width of the doughnut rings on the the mini doughnut pan. Twist bag and fill each doughnut cup with the batter. Bake for 9 minutes, until doughnuts spring back when gently pressed. Remove doughnuts from pan and allow to cool briefly.
In the meantime, melt butter in small pan or bowl (about 30 seconds to 45 seconds). Pour sugar on a plate and mix together with the 1 to 2 tablespoons of cinnamon.
While doughnuts are still hot, use a fork to quickly dip each doughnut top in melted butter, then in the cinnamon sugar. Serve immediately.
Makes about 3 dozen.
