Tortelli di Carnevale

Tortelli di Carnevale are deep-fried puffs, coated with sugar.  A delight for adults and kids alike.  They can be served empty or filled with chocolate, whipped cream or other kinds of cream. The filling is inserted with a pastry syringe, after the tortelli are cooked and have cooled down.
This popular and affordable Italian dessert is typical of Lombardy and traditionally eaten during Carneval weeks, though you should be able to find them in some pastry shops and bakeries throughout the winter season.
