National Doughnut Day is better than Christmas, so why let just doughnut shops have all the fun? Bang Bang Pie Shop, known for its insanely buttery biscuits nearly as much as its pies, today is premiering the bonut, a biscuit-doughnut hybrid. Bang Bang chef Patrick Cloud says it's sweeter than a biscuit due to its vanilla-bean icing and richer than a doughnut, due to all that butter. It's served with cherry-berry jam and an optional candied bacon crumble for $4 and available today through the rest of the weekend.
