    Serves: 120 

    • 6 egg yolks
    • 240ml sour cream
    • 3 tablespoons white sugar
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla essence
    • 1 tablespoon whiskey
    • 3 cups (375g) plain flour
    • 1 cup (250ml) vegetable oil for frying
    • 1/3 cup (60g) icing sugar for decoration

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Heat oil in deep-fryer to hot (190 degrees C).
    2. In a large bowl beat together the egg yolks, sour cream, white sugar, vanilla and whiskey until smooth. Stir in flour until dough is stiff enough to knead. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth. Knead in additional flour if necessary. Divide dough into 3 or 4 pieces and roll each ball on floured surface. Cut into strips about 8cm long then make a slit long ways down the middle. Pull one of the ends through like a bow.
    3. Place into hot oil and deep fry until golden brown. Let drain on paper towels and sprinkle with icing sugar.

    I have the same recipe from my grandmother and we made it today - with this recipe's help (we didn't know about the vanilla!) You really need a pasta machine for rolling out the dough but otherwise it was perfect! Thank you thank you thank you!  -  06 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
