This is such a comfort food! I pan fried them since I don't have a deep frier and that worked very well -- crispy outside and smooth and creamy inside! I loved the honey! I added the sesame seeds to half and cinnamon to the other half. I had one for dessert last night and the other for breakfast this morning. They did really well reheated for breakfast (in the microwave). Thanks for posting Little! [Made for Veggie Swap January 2009]

These are really good. Made as is and loved them. Made for dinner, not sure I would eat them as a snack. Made for Everyday's a Holiday Tag Feb 2010.

I really enjoyed this recipe! I actually roasted mine for about 15 minutes, then transferred to a frying pan for the rest. Loved the black sesame seeds with this. Thanks! Made for the Potluck in the Comfort Cafe-Ja. 2010.
