Deep-fried Goodness

Doughnuts are one of my favorite treats.  What’s not to love about deep-fried sweet dough?  Fortunately, Lithuania has its own version of doughnuts, spurgos.  The Lithuanian doughnut is round, plump and covered with sugar.  They might be plain or jam-filled or even filled with varškė.  It tends to be more doughy than American doughnuts.

The Spurgienė (doughnut shop) on Laisvės Alėja often has a line out the door for some of the best doughnuts in town.  My favorites are the jam-filled ones.  A warm doughnut and a cup of tea is the perfect treat on a cold, winter’s day.
