RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

DESSERT

ALI FRITTE (Fried Wings - Crullers), Italian

Ingredients
  • 2 cups flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 whole egg and 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tbsp. flavoring such as brandy, white wine, lemon juice or vanilla
Preparation Instructions

Make a stiff dough with 2 cups flour, pinch of salt, 1 whole egg and 2 egg yolks, 1 tbsp. sugar and 2 tbsp. flavoring such as brandy, white wine, lemon juice or vanilla. Knead well with hands and, when quite firm, roll out on floured board (a little at a time) until very thin (paper thin).

Cut criss-cross in diamond shaped pieces. Use a knife or a fluted cutter to give a fancy fringed edge. Fry in deep, hot fat or cooking oil until golden brown; remove quickly, let drain on paper toweling, then arrange on a platter and sprinkle each layer with powdered sugar.
