A traditional German sweet treat served around the time of Carnival, known as Fasching in Germany, these fried pastries are made with creamy quark for a dense pastry that is fried and sprinkled with sugar. These pastries are simple, sweet, but oh so good. These Krapfen are a treat best served warm.
