How to make it

  • Beat the egg yolks with the sugar until well combined.
  • Add sour cream, rum and vanilla and mix until smooth.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder and salt and add it to egg yolk mixture, a little at a time.
  • On a heavily floured surface knead the dough vigorously, punching and squeezing as much flour into it as it will take until the dough is no longer sticky (1/2 hour).
  • Separate dough into several portions and roll very thin.
  • Turn the dough and loosen often when rolling.
  • The dough should look like parchment paper that you can see through.
  • Cut dough into strips approximately 1-1/2 inches wide, 4 inches long.
  • Make slit closer to one end and bring the longer end through the slit. Heat oil to 375 degrees and fry quickly (only a few seconds) until golden not brown.
  • Turn only once.
  • Drain on paper towels.
  • Dust with confectioners sugar.
  • Makes 8 dozen.

    When I was a kid in Wisconsin our family made these every Christmas.

    However it was called "fattigman" Poor Man's Bread (from Norway).

    Thanx for the great memory.

    These sound devine. My Baba was a rotten cook but she was great with bread, noodles and Chruschiki. I will make these soon.
