Diples- Greek Fried Pastries

dessert from the Peloponnese, made of thin sheet-like dough. The dough is rolled into long, thin strips, fried and folded in hot oil and then dipped in syrup.
Traditionally, warm honey is used in place of syrup, and the diples are sprinkled with chopped nuts and cinnamon.
Diples can be made in different shapes, of which the most common are bow ties and spirals.
Diples are a typical dessert in the Peloponese and are also served at weddings and at New Year’s celebrations.
