I got this recipe from my younger DD’s teacher Mme Bernier, and when my DD told me the recipe I kind a laugh because this recipe is made with ready-to-use Pillsbury Crescent dough. As I am a passionate baker and do ALL my recipe from scratch, there was no way I was going to make this. BUT after two days of begging from both my kids I gave in and made it. WELL WELL WELL little did I know this recipe turns out to be delicious. It took about 5 min to make and was so easy that it may have opened a whole new world to me! (ok maybe just a little world). Even my husband who always says “I am not a dessert guy” loved it. So thanks to Mme Bernier you can also enjoy this easy “Pillsy” recipe.
FYI, “Pet de Soeur” is a traditionally French Canadian recipe that literally translates to Nun’s Farts. However my recipe is a bit different as it doesn’t include cinnamon (optional!) and it’s not rolled. Here is a more elaborate description from : “So, why a flatulence reference for such a delicious pastry? There are a few theories. One points to the noise that doughnuts make while being fried. Another explains that a nun farted in a kitchen causing another nun to crack up so hard, she dropped some pastry in hot oil and hey whaddyaknow, it tasted pretty good.” Read more about it .
