As the hot summer nights turn into cool fall evenings and the trees, start to turn beautiful colors you know it’s time to pull out the baking pan and start putting your oven to good use. Today not only am I going to share with you this amazing Snapple®, Pecan Pie Donuts recipe. I also have an amazing fun, Fall tablescape so you can enjoy the cool evening with a group of friends. First things first. DONUTS!
Ingredients needed: M&M’s® Pecan Pie, Snapple® Apple Single, Pillsbury™ Moist Supreme® and Pillsbury™ Creamy Supreme® Cream Cheese Icing. You will also need a donut pan, nonstick spray, vegetable oil, and one egg.
Pre-Heat the oven to 425 degrees before mixing your ingredients. First you will need to poor your Pillsbury™ Moist Supreme® into bowl, mix in 1/4 cup of vegetable oil, 1 egg, 1 cup of Snapple® Apple (mix 1/2 at a time) and 1 cup of M&M’s® Pecan Pie. Once your batter is mixed well (some bumps are ok) Spray your pan, and fill 3/4 full. Place in oven and cook for 12-15 minutes.
While donuts are in the oven take your Pillsbury™ Creamy Supreme® Cream Cheese Icing place in bowl and microwave until soft and melted. Once your donuts are out of the oven, let cool down before placing icing on top. I used a spoon, but you can also dip the top half of donut into a bowl for more icing.
TIP: Be careful when taking donuts out of the pan, the M&M’s® can stick more than the batter.

Now that you have made your delicious Snapple®, Pecan Pie Donuts it’s time to set up your table for the party. This was my favorite part. Getting to be creative and bring out the Fall inside of me. Living in Texas, Fall is one of the best times of the year. The weather is perfect, going from 100+ degrees to in the 70 brings out the child in me that wants to go outside and play.
First I bought some burlap to use as my table runner. Since I have a dark wood table, the tan of the burlap brings out a special Fall essence.
On top of the burlap is where all the fun happens. Adding some Fall colored leaves on top.
Using a glass bowl, I filled up with pine cones all different sizes as well as spread them around the table. Inside the glass bowl, I also added my DIY flower vase. I will show you how to make this in just a second.
But before I get to the DIY, lets not forget the pumpkins and candles to add just a little more Fall feeling to the table.
I’m not sure why I picked the big round plates, but I thought it gave my get-together just a little more fun. I lit the candles, added my Snapple®, Pecan Pie Donuts, Snapple® Apple to wash down the deliciousness. Mott’s® Apple Juice and small bowls of
In order to finish off the table I wanted to make a simple flower vase that I could continue to use even after I put away this magical set up. What you will need is also pictured below. You need your mason jar, small pice of burlap, flowers of your chosing and ribbon that you love.
