I made these for my sons multi-cultural lunch at school. All the kids loved them and they were very easy to make. Lightly crisp and sweet on the outside and warm and soft on the inside. I did add a little extra cinnamon and sugar before I folded in the egg whites because I thought the dough should be sweeter. Read More

Brought these to a Polish night at a friend's. They were basically fried dough with potatoes. Everyone liked them but they seemed a bit heavy to me. I did as the other reviewer suggested and added more sugar (a lot). Never having these before I would say they were okay. Read More
