This dessert needs a warning label because they're highly addictive. You won't be able to stop at one! They're like cinnamon sugar donut holes filled with vanilla pudding. Once fried, they're slightly crisp on the outside and inside is light and airy. The layers make it easy to separate a small area to stuff them with pudding. You do need to eat these right away because they're not as good leftover. But don't worry... put these filled donuts on a platter and watch them disappear.
