NEW YORK (AP) -- Help is on the way for knish (kuh-NIHSH') cravers.

The Brooklyn-based Center for Kosher Culinary Arts says it's developed a recipe for the square, fried, potato-filled doughy treats.

That should help tide people over until a Long Island factory billed as the world's largest maker of knishes recovers from a fire.

The September fire at the Gabila's (guh-BIHL'-uhz) plant in Copiague (KOH'-payg) has knish lovers searching far and wide for the doughy pillows of pureed potatoes.

One of the Gabila's owners says they hope to be back in operation in a couple of weeks.

In the meantime, the Center for Kosher Culinary Arts says it has developed a recipe to help "knish-a-holics."

The center has the recipe on its website.
