Ingredients

Adjust Servings

Original recipe yields 4 dozen cookies

Directions

  1. Dissolve sugar in lukewarm water in a large bowl and sprinkle yeast over the top. Let yeast activate until it forms a creamy layer on top of the water, about 10 minutes.
  2. Rinse raisins and pat dry with paper towels. Stir raisins into yeast mixture; beat eggs, lukewarm milk, and salt into yeast mixture. Beat flour into liquid ingredients until dough is smooth. If dough is too sticky, beat in 1/4 cup more flour. Cover dough and set aside in a warm place to rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Heat vegetable oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) in a large saucepan or deep fat fryer.
  4. Scoop up dough by tablespoon and drop, a few at a time, into the hot oil. Fry until lightly browned; drain on wire racks set over paper towels. Dust with confectioners' sugar.

We eat these every year. The dough is a thick batter, thicker than pancake batter, thinner than nut bread. I dip the spoon into the hot fat in between each "cookie". It keeps the spoon cleaner. Sometimes I make a thin powdered sugar glaze and drizzle over the warm cookies. they make very interesting shapes, and discussing them is half the fun.
