Hanukkah and Thanksgiving may not coincide very often, but these pumpkin honey doughnuts will make you wish they did.

To help bridge these holidays, we borrowed a classic dessert of each — fried doughnuts for Hanukkah and pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving — and brought them together in one delicious mouthful. The result is a terrifically moist fried doughnut rich with the flavors of pumpkin pie. A glaze of cinnamon- and lemon-spiked honey ties everything together.
