If you happen to be in New York City this week, do yourself a favor and head to Zucker Bakery in East Village. In celebration of Thanksgiving and Hanukkah falling on the same date (an event which apparently won’t happen again for over 70,000 years!) the crazy kids at this cute shop on east 9th street have come up with an array of thanksgiving-themed sufganiyot.
I sampled the savory as well as the sweet — first I tried the turkey and gravy-filled donut, made with pumpkin-dough. Genius! Just as delicious were the sweet potato-dough donuts, which were filled with marshmallow. Served straight out of the fryer, these were warm little parcels of heaven.
