Carnival baked chatter
Description

The baked chatter is the typical dessert that is prepared to celebrate Carnival. According to the italian region, there are so many names to refer to this tasty puff pastry: "chiacchiere", "crostoli", "frappe" or "bugie". Traditionally, they are cooked fried but now we propose a light baked variant, great for adults but especially for children, who is allowed to get dirty with icing sugar to give a touch of joy to the most playful party of the year. Have a good Carnival.
