    echo echo's Note:

    A Greek doughnut-hole-like fried puff pastry. If you can't get thyme honey, other honey will do. Each time I've made these, I've come out with a different number, with the count varying quite a bit across time. So the amount given is only a very inexact estimate.

      This is a wonderful recipe for loukoumades! I did increase the yeast slightly for this recipe, and used thyme honey... the trick to making these is not to add in too much flour, the dough has to hold together but still be a bit sticky otherwise the fryed dough will be tough. We really enjoyed these, thanks so much Echo!...Kitten:)
