Comment on this recipe

These are wonderful Croatian sweet treats. My sisters and I make these for special family occasions!

Ingredients

1 tablespoon baking powder
2-3 cups flour
2-1/2 tablespoons sugar
Pinch of salt
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
9 jumbo egg yolks and 1 jumbo egg
2 tablespoons half & half
1 shot of whiskey
Vegetable oil
Powdered sugar

Instructions

Mix the dry ingredients together, using only 2 cups of flour. Beat the egg yolks, egg and vanilla together. Add the half and half. Add 1 cup of the dry mixture. Mix together. Add the shot of whiskey. Mix together. Add the remainder of the dry ingredients. Knead until the dough is not sticky. It will probably take an additional cup of flour. If the dough is gummy, you may need to add an additional 1/2 cup of flour. Roll out paper thin. Cut into strips with a slot in the middle. Pull one end of the dough through the slot to form the "angel wing." Fry in oil. Turn once. Sprinkle with powdered sugar while still warm.
