Place a heaping tablespoon of filling in center of each piece. Pinch the edges together to seal in filling. Spread sesame seeds onto a shallow dish. Roll dough balls in seeds, pressing lightly to help the seeds adhere to the dough. In a large skillet or fryer, heat oil. Fry doughnuts; turning frequently until golden brown 6-7 minutes.
