3 tablespoons of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla or almond extract
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 cups of all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons of unsalted softened butter
Oil for deep fat-frying
Confectioner’s sugar or honey
In a bowl, beat eggs, sugar and salt until frothy. Stir in vanilla or almond extract. Sift flour with baking powder and gradually add to batter. Add butter and mix well. Turn out on a floured surface: knead for at least 10 minutes. Divide dough into half; then roll each as thin as possible (noodle thickness) Cut into 5”x 1” strips with a knife or scalloped pastry wheel.
Preheat oil to about 375°F. Now fry cookies until golden brown about 1 minute per side. Drain on paper towels, sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar or drizzle honey on top. Cookies are best served the same day. Enjoy!!
*********Before I close this post, I have a favor to ask of my readers, but this is important to me, so I want to share this with you my friends.
I'm a super fan and close personal friend of Micheal Castaldo. Micheal is an Award-winning songwriter/producer, recording artist, Composer, Italian Cultural Ambassador, and Entrepreneur. Born in Reggio Calabria, Italy (the toe of Italy) and raised there until he was three, Micheal and his family immigrated to Toronto, Canada, and now resides in New York. Micheal’s music is heavenly. His passion for his music as an accomplished pop crossover singer of his native songs, wraps his joy, and experience in a fresh, and powerful sound. “Extravergine“, “Aceto,” “Olive You,” and “Bergamot,” are a few of his CD’s. (which you can purchase on Amazon.com) Among his many beautiful songs are “Allelulia” (Hallelujah), “Tu Scendi Dalle Stelle,” “Il Mondo,” “Pray'r,” and my favorite, “Nella Fantasia.”
I'm reaching out to you because we need your help to vote for Micheal in Artistsignal. (ArtistSignal is a free social music platform allowing listeners to vote for a Top Artist each month. They give the Top Artist at the end of the month $10,000. This allows listeners to propel talented artists to the top of our platform and gives artists an entirely new avenue to grow their fan base. Voters can earn rewards directly from artists just by voting!) We're looking to help him get to #1 next month (March). If you have not yet voted on Artistsignal, you will see that it's very easy to do. You can login using your Facebook account. If you have any questions please reach out to me and I will be happy to help you, or better yet, let Micheal know by posting in the comment section on Artistsignal that you are on board with us! Thank you in advance for your help. Ciao! Dottie :)
