Fundiţe ($10 per pound) are butter-and-sugar-lacquered Romanian "knots," though a niggler might maintain that "twists" is closer to the truth. Each wasp-waisted pastry practically begs to be nipped in half; the texture is so airy (yet crunchy-crisp) that you may scarcely notice the rest of the pastry has also passed your lips. Two bites, you'll find, can quickly lead to a dozen more.
