In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs, egg yolks, cream and vanilla extract.
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 degrees
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
