    I made these yesterday and they were awesome! I always have pumpkin spice at home and this made a great quick breakfast. I love being able to use bisquick! I never have typical baking ingredients at home. So easy.

    Much better with the Bisquick. I think folks giving the recipe 1 star probably used flour.

    I loved the recipe but I changed it a little bit. I put extra pumpkin spice in it and also after I glazed the donut holes I sprinkled them with pumpkin spice also. The results were delicious. I truly enjoyed them.

    Just curious if people have misread the recipe? It calls for all-purpose baking mix, not something like Bisquick would be ideal. If using Bisquick it should have the right ingredients to make the donuts rise properly and taste good. I haven't tried the recipe yet...but before I do, I'd like to find out if that may have been a mistake that was made.

    Where's the pumpkin? Otherwise it is just weak cinnamon sweet biscuit with a powdered sugar glaze. Not what I expected with Pumpkin Pie in the name.

    HORRIBLE! This recipe is definitely missing ingredients. Batter is so thick, doesn't bake well, tastes awful. Don't waste your time or ingredients on this recipe! ZERO stars if possible.

    I agree with Paula and Marlene. This was a waste of ingredients and my time!! Looks nothing like the picture and taste terribly! Too bad I thought these would be fun to serve this fall. It lacks some ingredient I'm sure!

    If there was a zero rating, These would receive it. I agree with Paul wholeheartedly; no flavor. They tasted like wallpaper paste, did not rise, came out of the pan exactly like I put them in. After tasting one for myself and giving my husband another, the whole batch went into the garbage.

    There is something missing from this recipe...not certain just what it is. The batter/dough is thick, sticky and very difficult to 'spoon' into mini donut pan. They have no flavor and exited the pan in the same shape as when put into the pan. They actually taste like flour paste and have no coloring, either. They look nothing like the picture.
