A homemade very dry dough is deep fried before being sprinkled with icing sugar to serve. They make a great movie snack.
Great recipe. I had trouble rolling the dough paper-thin, but I found an easier way. If you have trouble, just roll the dough as thin as possible, cut into strips, and then roll each strip separately... and continue with the process. And be sure to dust with sugar while still warm!! - 15 Jul 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I made the cookies for Christmas, my family LOVED them, we have not had them since my Grandmother died, and everyone was thrilled that I found a recipe that tasted just like the one we knew from our childhood. - 31 Dec 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Turned out just like my mothers and grandmothers. You can't eat just one. - 16 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
