These bite-sized Christmas Baked Stuffed Donuts are great for festive platters. The recipe makes twelve and results in soft, chewy donuts with a mince pie stye filling. The spices create the familiar Yuletide aromas and a splash of rum blends the flavors seamlessly. There is a little bit of assembly required, so make ahead of time and give yourself a generous hour to do so. The final touch is painting in simple syrup and rolling in caster sugar for the authentic donut experience.
