Directions

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk egg yolks, egg, sugar, salt, vanilla, and whiskey. Stir in 2 cups of the flour. If dough is sticky, add the rest of the flour. Knead dough for 5 minutes; divide into three parts. Keep dough pieces covered with plastic wrap until ready to use.
  2. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Or, alternately, melt 2 pounds lard(see Editor's Note). Oil should be about 1 inch deep.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out one piece of the dough until it's paper-thin. Cut into parallelogram (long diamond) shapes, and use a sharp paring knife to cut a slot in the centers. Pull one point of the diamond through the slot; set aside and repeat with remaining pieces.
  4. Fry 2 to 4 pieces at a time, depending on the size of your pan, about 5 to 10 seconds on each side. The cookies should not be browned. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels; dust with confectioners' sugar when cool. Store any remaining cookies in an airtight container.

Footnotes

  • Editor's Notes:
  • These are traditionally fried in lard. You'll need about 2 pounds of lard to make it deep enough for frying.
  • We have determined the nutritional value of lard for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of fat used.

I make these the traditional Polish way. To keep from being tough no egg whites. 13 egg yokes. Small container of sour cream. Flour until it stops sticking to your hands. I have never made them in under 3 hours. Type of alcohol does not matter. I use whiskey. I usually use 2 boxes of xxx sugar. They melt in your mouth.....remember don't be afraid to kneed the dough....there are no real measurements of ingredients. Super light and super tasty.
