When I was a child at Christmas time we always had a special treat that consisted of what I think was fried dough balls and honey. Can anyone tell me what this was called and how to make it?

Italian Honey Balls. These are the authentic ones made by my 82 year old sister from our mother's recipe. If pine nuts aren't available, use slivered almonds instead.

This is a flat bread that is easy to prepare, and is usually served with something sweet to put on top, like honey or cinnamon-sugar.

This treat is known by different names in different areas. Here in Arizona it is known as fry bread, in New Mexico it is known as sopapillas and in Washington it is known as elephant ears. The shapes also vary from one region to another. Serve plain, sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon, dredged in honey, or split and filled with chili con carne and toppings.

Similar to doughnut holes, these sweet, deep fried balls are great plain or tossed with sugar and cinnamon. Fry 'em up, and pop 'em down!

If you ever visited Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, in the winter months on the Rideau Canal, which is the longest skating rink in the world, they serve 'Beaver Tails,' a sweet pastry that is essentially a flat doughnut with sugar on top. I could not get the authentic recipe since it is their trade secret, but I created a replica of what they serve.

These little yeast-risen dough puffs are deep-fried to a golden brown, then drizzled with honey syrup and sprinkled with cinnamon. They're popular all around the Mediterranean, especially in Greece, and are beloved as a Hanukkah treat among Sephardic Jews.
