Most of the Lithuanian traditional desserts, among which zagareliai are the heritage of the noble cuisine. Shaped zagareliai are baked in Lithuania for quite a long time and often have a nostalgic shade - mum or grandmother's childhood cookies. Highlanders were the first who started to fry the first zagareliai, then the rest of Lithuanians. They were made from yeast dough; it is rolled out and zagareliai are formed. Fried in oil, so it is a quite fatty dessert.
