Authentic Greek Diples - Fried Pastry With Honey Syrup And Walnuts

Diples are a traditional Greek sweet made of fried pastry coated in a honey syrup and topped with walnuts. The word Diples in Greece comes from the word diplono (δι-πλώ-νω) which means folding. They're pronounced The-ples, and are named this way because of the dough being folded while it gets fried.
