9 delicious doughnut shops in Dallas and beyond

The new shop is on Abrams Road, near the Lakewood Country Club and Whole Foods Market. Jarams' staffers call themselves "donut artists," a name confirmed by the colorful pastries inside the brand-new shop.

It's the second Jarams in D-FW; the first is in Far North Dallas, near Preston and Frankford roads.

While the shop sells "Average Joe donuts" like glazed, cake, twists, donut holes and the like, Jarams is best known for its specialty pastries. At Valentine's Day, Jarams sells heart-shaped white-chocolate cake doughnuts, for instance. At St. Patrick's Day, they're shamed like shamrocks and iced in emerald green. At Halloween, their doughnuts are painted to look like pumpkins, black cats, Frankensteins, monsters and mummies. 

So are you ready for the Christmas doughnuts at Jarams?

The shop is selling all kinds of red and green Christmas goodies, including a doughnut with an edible sugar globe, one with a mustachioed Santa Claus, and one shaped like a tree.

Jarams Donuts has a (rare) feature for small a doughnut shop, where fans can purchase specialty pastries online. Surely you've seen the popular letter-shaped doughnuts on Instagram, and Jarams offers all the letters, whether you're spelling "Happy Birthday" or "Thank you" or "Get In My Belly."

The shop also sells funnel cake doughnuts, flavored croissants and kolaches.
