Loukoumades

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
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.
