Fried Hungarian Angel Wings
Why I Love This Recipe
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 You'll Need
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.
