    I made these for my sons multi-cultural lunch at school. All the kids loved them, and they were very easy to make. Lightly crisp and sweet on the outside, and warm and soft on the inside. I did add a little extra cinnamon and sugar before I folded in the egg whites, because I thought the dough should be sweeter.  -  15 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Brought these to a Polish night at a friend's. They were basically fried dough with potatoes. Everyone liked them, but they seemed a bit heavy to me. I did as the other reviewer suggested and added more sugar (a lot). Never having these before I would say they were okay.  -  27 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
