Gogoși [1] are Romanian sweet pastries similar to filled doughnuts. Gogoși is the plural form of the Romanian word gogoaşă.

Gogoși are pieces of dough shaped into a flattened sphere that are deep-fried in oil and optionally dusted with icing sugar. They have no hole and are often filled. Gogoși fillings include chocolate, apricot jam, strawberry jam or cream cheese.

Origins[edit]

Gogoşi are believed to date back to Classical antiquity, when Romania was a province of the Roman Empire. They may be related to the sweet dough balls included as aliter dulcia (another sweet dish) in the Roman recipe collection Apicius.
