Khrustyky Recipe (Ukranian)
3 egg yolks
1 T. whipping cream
1 T. vanilla extract
2 T. sugar
1 1/2 C. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
Oil for deep-fat frying
In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs, egg yolks, cream and vanilla. Beat in sugar.
Combine flour and salt; stir into the egg mixture just until smooth (dough will be soft). Divided into four portions.
On a well-floured surface, roll out one portion to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut into 1 1/2-inch strips; cut strips diagonally into three pieces. Cut a 1 1/2-inch slit lengthwise into the center of each piece; pull one end of strip through slit to make a loop. Cover shaped pieces while rolling out and cutting the remaining dough.
In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat 2-3 inches of oil to 375° F. Fry pastries, a few at a time, until golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels. Dust with confectioners' sugar while warm.
Yield: 1 1/2 dozen pastries
