Yield: 1 1/2 dozen pastries


  • 2 eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • Confectioners' sugar


  1. In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs, egg yolks, cream and vanilla extract.
  2. Beat in sugar.
  3. Combine flour and salt; stir into the egg mixture just until smooth (dough will be soft). Divided into four portions.
  4. 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.
  5. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat 2 to 3 inches of oil to 375 degrees F.
  6. Fry pastries, a few at a time, until golden brown, turning once.
  7. Drain on paper towels.
  8. Dust with confectioners' sugar while warm.
