Diples or xerotigana, is a Greek dessert made of thin, sheet-like dough.

The dough is rolled into long, thin strips, folded and fried in oil and then dipped in a sugar or honey syrup. Diples can be made in different shapes, the most common being bow ties and spirals. Another form uses an iron mold dipped in diples batter and then dipped in cooking oil until the diples separate from the mold. They are topped with syrup, crushed walnuts, and cinnamon.
