Please feel free to adjust the sugar content. 

Use any neutral oil you prefer. I have made it with melted coconut oil and worked out well. I have also made it with melted butter - but it did not turn out as nice as oil.

This can be made using wheat plain flour.

If you do change the filling, for example you used your favorite jam - please leave a comment and let me know what you thought of it!
