These are very crispy and light as a feather fried dough cookies. They look great when piled high in a pyramid on a cut crystal platter.


  • Ingredients:
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rum or whiskey
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted.


  • Place in the center of a breadboard one cup of flour. Make a dent or well in the center. Add the whole yolks, sour cream, sugar, rum and salt. With a fork mix until the liquids are well combined.
  • Gradually work into the flour. The dough should be of the consistency of noodle dough. Knead for a few minutes to make the dough smooth.
  • Split the dough into 2 portions. On a lightly floured board roll out each section until paper-thin.
  • If you have a pie-crimping wheel, use it to cut the dough into squares of 3 1/2-inches or a rectangle of 3 1/2 x 2 1/2-inches. They will have beautiful serrated edges. 5. With a paring knife make three or four gashes about 2 to 2 1/2-inches evenly spaced.
  • Fry in a deep fat (Lard preferred, Crisco or vegetable oil) until golden brown.
  • Drain on paper towel.
  • Sprinkle with sifted confectioners sugar while still warm on both sides.
