Don't You Dare call them Doughnuts!...



They may look like doughnuts, but call them donuts and the residents of Pennsylvania's Dutch Country, will send you quickly packing back across the Appalachian Mountains!
Well, if they're not donuts, then what?
Can you say 'Fastnacht'?...yes, Fastnacht! {phonetic hint:Foz' nots}. From the German word meaning "Fast Night", this Central Pennsylvania pastry delight marks the eve of Lent.
BellaOnline Home cooking editor, Sandy Moyer, describes it this way.
So, now that you are well-versed about this sinfully fattening bake good...
...Just DON'T YOU DARE CALL THEM DONUTS!...

Angela,
They are sinfully good...and right before Lent. Way to get rid of all of the 'bad' fat in the host.
