Long you had to wait for me… Longed although little? 🙂 I hope you do not have to leave for such a long time. I missed blogging, but on the other hand, I could not find the strength, in order to take this again. Apparently it was meant to be.
But this day I come to you with a delicious proposition, which you can use for the upcoming Mardi Gras. Precelki, I prepared for you that are very tasty, very soft and fragrant. The hand itself goes back to the next and the next… And that gets them hastily, you do not have to wait long to mature out the dough. Even after an hour, you can enjoy their taste. And this is their undoubted advantage. I recommend you very much!
