Piedmontese Bugie (Fried Cookies For Carnevale!)
Italian traditions for Carnevale and Easter:
One of these traditions is eating "bugie". A lot of you food bloggers out there are writing about your fried cookie recipes and although I don't want to bore you with mine, I just couldn't resist posting a picture of Claudio's mom's version along with her very "vague" recipe! In our area they make "bugie" (lies) which are flat and puffed up in the middle. Sometimes they are filled with jams or Nutella and can be baked for a healthier version.
