We have always looked forward to getting Fastnachts at a local bakery on Fat Tuesday only. Unfortunately they closed. These light potato donuts with the sweet light creme filling were worth waiting for, on that one day. Does anyone know how to make them at home?
Go to berksweb.com/pam/fast.html for some great recipes for this. Good luck!

What is Fat Tuesday?
Thanks to all who directed me to websites with recipes. Does anyone know what a recipe would be for the slightly sweet light creme filling mentioned?
Fat Tuesday, also known as Mardi Gras, is the Tuesday before the beginning of Lent. It is called that because Lent begins on a Wednesday when Christians were required to fast, and on Fat Tuesday, they ate heartily; signifiying the last big meal for 40 days and nights.
