A simple and delicious dessert. Fried pies with brown sugar (or icing sugar) go to "Cheers". This is not the vegetable patties are baked, usually on the feast of Mardi Gras - Fat Tuesday. But we will not wait for it - offered to try now. Why "pies", if there is no filling? - the name retained by the author. Why "Nantes"? - also leave on conscience of the author, from whom I borrowed this recipe on one of the cooking blogs. For reference - Nantes is the sixth largest city of France.
