NEW YORK (AP) -- Help is on the way for knish 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 plant in Copiague 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.
