“A nice deep-fried cookie that tastes delicious! This is why you only eat them once a year! Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve on New Year's!” - by Julianna.Marie
Original recipe yields 4 dozen cookies
- 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.
- 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.
- Heat vegetable oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) in a large saucepan or deep fat fryer.
- 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. So..." See moremetimes 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."
