MINCIUNELE (Fibs -- Crullers), Romanian

Ingredients
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 egg white, stiffly beaten
  • 3 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tbsp. heavy sour cream
  • Some powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp. butter

Preparation Instructions

Into stiffly beaten egg white, fold the 2 egg yolks, and heavy cream. Add salt, sugar, butter, rum or lemon rind. Work in a cup or more sifted flour. Knead until dough is springy. Roll out at least 1/8 inch thick, taking only a small portion of dough at a time. Cut into oblong 2 x 5-inch pieces with a fluted or plain knife. Make a slit in center of each oblong piece, pass one end through it and fry imnmediately in deep hot fat until golden brown. Cakes will puff up in hot fat. Remove and drain on paper. Sift powdered sugar over them. Makes about 3 dozen.
