Makes 3 dozen doughnut holes

2 teaspoons instant yeast

3 cups all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

½ cup warm water

15-ounce can pumpkin purée (not pumpkin-pie filling)

1 egg

1 / 3 cup honey

2 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Vegetable oil, for frying

1. In a medium bowl, stir together the yeast, flour, salt and pumpkin pie spice. Stir in the water, pumpkin and egg until a thick, smooth batter forms. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rest for 45 minutes.

2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the honey, sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon. Bring to a boil and stir well. Remove from the heat.

3. In a large, deep skillet over medium-high, heat 1 inch of oil to 375 F.

4. Working in batches, carefully drop the batter by the tablespoonful into the hot oil. A cookie or small ice-cream scoop makes this easier. Turning occasionally, fry the doughnuts until deep golden brown all over and cooked through, about five minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the fried doughnuts to a large bowl. Drizzle the honey syrup over the doughnuts and toss to coat. Repeat with remaining doughnuts. Serve immediately.
