Cider Donuts and Halfmoon Cookies: An Upstate New York Tradition

When frost is on the pumpkin and the leaves start putting on a show, it is time for Upstate New York to enjoy the splendors of a beautiful autumn.

No fall season is complete without two of our favorite treats: apple cider donuts and halfmoon cookies. I know you can get fresh squeezed cider during this season only, and you can get halfmoon cookies all year long, but lets face it. Neither tastes as good as when you get them from a roadside market or farm store in October!

There are hundreds of places where you can get these seasonal treats. Here is a sampler of "what is out there."
