Diples Greek Fried Dough

Share:

We made Diples at the amazing Saltbox Farm and I only wish you could get THIS type of fried dough at a summer carnival. What makes Greek Diples a superior fried dough? The ouzo infused dough doesn’t hurt the cause. And once you smother warm honey syrup, nuts, & cinnamon over the hot fluffy dough, you’ll want to book a one way ticket to Greece.
