And the Winner of the World's Worst Name for a Pastry Goes to . . .

"Pet de Soeur" -- in English, "Nun's Farts."

Want one? I didn't think so.

Apparently, there are different kinds of nun's farts (I'm having flashbacks to those fart books that they used to sell in Spencer Gifts and other junk novelty stores). Serious Eats highlights a variety that is made from a dough similar to pie crust, rolled up with butter, cinnamon and sugar.

And just WHO do you think is responsible for this abominable name? My people, of course -- French Canadians.
