    Fazuelos (sometime called faduelos) are a deep fried Jewish biscuit eaten on Purim and some times Yom Kippur. I dip mine in a syrup made of sugar, water and brandy.

      Biscuit Dough

    1. Mix together eggs, oil, water and baking powder. Mix in just enough flour to make a smooth dough. Roll the dough into balls then roll each ball about 1mm thin. Slice into long strips.
    2. Heat oil in a wok or deep fryer. Using a fork, add a strip to the hot oil with the one end wrapped around a fork then slowly dip in a circular motion. Fry until golden then drain on news paper. Repeat until all strips have been fried.
    3. Syrup

    4. Bring sugar, water, brandy and lemon juice to a boil. Slowly simmer, stirring, until all liquor cooks off and sauce is thickened. Dip biscuits in syrup then allow to cool before serving.
