“Fried snowflake cookies, Scandinavian-type. My kids love these, especially at Christmas time.” - by RMEG58
Original recipe yields 32 snowflake cookies
- Line baking sheets with waxed paper or parchment paper, and sprinkle with flour.
- Heat the milk just to the boiling point in a saucepan. Stir together the flour, baking powder, and sugar in a bowl until well combined, then mix in the butter and gradually pour in the hot milk, mixing between each addition, until the mixture forms a stiff dough.
- Turn the dough out onto an oiled work surface, and knead until the dough is cool and smooth, about 5 minutes. Cut the dough into 4 equal-sized pieces, then cut those pieces into 4 pieces, making 16 pieces. Divide each of the 16 pieces in half to make 32 equal-sized pieces of dough. Cover the pieces with a cloth, and let the dough rest for about 20 minutes.
- Working on a floured surface, roll each piece of dough out into a thin circle about 8 inches in diameter. Place the circles onto the prepared baking sheets, cover with a cloth, and allow to rest for 30 minutes.
- Fold each circle in half, then in half again. With a sharp knife or small cookie cutters, snip and cut shapes out of the folded dough the way you make a paper snowflake. Carefully open the circle back up, revealing the pattern. Stack the cut snowflakes between sheets of waxed paper on a flat surface.
- Heat oil in a deep skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). The oil should be about 2 inches deep.
- Carefully lay a snowflake into the hot oil, keeping it flat. Allow it to fry until golden brown and crisp, about 1 minute per side. Gently flip the snowflakes over with a tongs to prevent breakage. Drain the fried snowflakes on paper towels, and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.

"I loved the idea of these - I love making paper snowflakes and thought they'd make awesome cookies for a gift basket. They're a bit too delicate for gifting and no kidding do they take a long time. ..." See moreThe taste by itself is like a fried wonton wrapper but sprinkled with the powdered sugar and drizzled with honey they're crunchy and sweet. The dough was good to work with and folded/unfolded easily when cool and dusted w/flour. I won't make this again unless I make it a family event with lots of hands to help. You'll probably have better luck with a good heavy rolling pin and practice with deep frying to golden perfection."
