FLAKY PASTRY (Szkalgye)
5 egg yolks
¼ c. sugar
1 tsp brandy
2&1/2 c. flour
5 tbsp. sour cream
fat for frying
Beat 5 egg yolks until lemon colored.
Add about ¼ cup sugar and beat smooth. Blend in 1 tsp. brandy.
2-1/2 cups flour alternately with 5 Tbsp. sour cream. Mix until
dough can be handled. Knead well on floured board. Roll out very
thin and cut into strips - 3 or 4 inches long and 1-1/2 inches wide.
Make a short slit in center of each piece and pull one end through
the slit. Fry in hot fat (about 350° to 375°) until lightly browned.
Drain on absorbent paper and dust generously with powdered sugar.
