But they do become rather lovely little pillows once they do puff up. Right before cooking, pat them down into relatively thin discs (about 1/4 inch thick). Fry in a 1/4 inch of oil on both sides until puffy, browned, and cooked through. I had my heat set to medium and this was about perfect. You might need to play around with your temperature to get it to cook through on the inside before the outside gets too dark.
