Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday and I love it. Perhaps not for the traditional reasons like eating until you explode, but because I get to cook and I have the time to cook. The 4 day weekend is wonderful to relax and recharge. I also get to make complicated recipes. Making something complicated is very satisfying to me. I enjoy trying to make something that is difficult and different. This Thanksgiving was no different. I started with my great aunt Laly's orange candy. This was fun because I had to make it up as I went along. She didn't write anything down so I had to remember everything I had witnessed during her preparations. I did it!! It turned out great and wasn't as crazy as I thought it would be.
Then deep fry and this is what they should look like. They are very crispy on the outside and very soft and delicious on the inside. You can also opt out of filling and just fry up the disks and that is very good also.
