  1. Dough: combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, apple pie spice and rapid rise yeast in a bowl of a stand mixer, whisk together. Scatter softened butter on top of dry ingredients. Ensure milk is at 110°F and combine in a mixing bowl eggs, vanilla extract, and salt. Whisk together. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Using a dough hook attachment, beat for 10 minutes till dough forms. With oil hands knead into a ball for a couple minutes. Place dough into a greased bowl. Cover dough with plastic wrap and a towel. Let dough rise for 2hrs in a warm place, till it doubles in size. Punch dough down. On a clean surface knead dough back into a ball, then roll dough into a rectangle. Using a 3-inch cookie cutter, cut dough and place on individual parchment squares on a baking sheet. Cover and let rise for an additional 45 minutes. 
  2. Prepare Oil: while the dough is rising by adding 8 cups of vegetable oil to a pot. Heat to 345° F.
  3. Make Filling: in a medium saucepan on medium heat add butter till melted. Add apples, brown sugar, Javamelts, cinnamon and apple cider. Constantly stir for about 5 minutes till the apples thicken.
  4. Frying: fry donuts for about 2 min on each side. Remove with tongs and place on a paper towel cooling rack. 
  5. Topping: roll donut into Javamelts Caramel sugar while still warm. With a large round tipped piping bag pipe apple filling into donuts. Optional to spread additional caramel, and apples on top. Eat warm and enjoy!
