Pastry Puffs topped with honey, nuts & cinnamon "Piticas"

During Hanukkah, Festival of Lights, fried foods dominate the menu to emphasise the miraculous oil that is central to this holiday.

Piticas are crisp, thin, deep-fried pastries, drizzled with a fragrant floral honey just before serving, sprinkled with nuts and toasted sesame seeds and dusted with ground cinnamon. They make a magnificent dessert stacked high on a large platter, and are delicious served on their own or with rice pudding or a scoop of your favourite ice cream and berries.

I wish you all a Happy Hanukkah!
