Recipe by echo echo
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.
- 2 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 package dry yeast
- 1 cup lukewarm water
- 1⁄2 cup thyme honey
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 3⁄4 cups water
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
Directions See How It's Made
- Sift the flour and salt together into a bowl.
- Sprinkle the yeast over the lukewarm water and stir to dissolve.
- Add yeast mixture to flour and beat or knead 5 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic.
- Cover the bowl with a damp cloth and let rise 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in bulk.
- Heat oil for deep fat frying.
- Pinch off small pieces of dough and fry in hot oil about 3 min until golden brown.
- Drain on paper towels and keep warm.
- In a saucepan, combine the honey thru lemon juice and bring to a boil.
- Cook, stirring, until sugar dissolves and mixture is syrupy.
- Pour over hot puffs and sprinkle with cinnamon.
