Serious Eats: Recipes
Don't let the photo fool you: while these holey treats may resemble doughnuts, they're actually pies! They are made up of morsels of pie crust which are then filled, rolled up and pinched to ensure the filling stays inside, then fried. While they're certainly not health food, they certainly are delicious: crispy, not too-sweet, easy to make, and completely open to improvisation with flavor.
