Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

Oil for deep frying
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/2 stick real butter
3/4 cup chopped nuts (pecans, walnuts)
1 egg yolk
Egg roll wrappers
Granulated sugar
Bananas or other various fruits (optional)

Instructions

Preheat deep fryer to 350 degrees. Combine corn syrup and butter in a small saucepan. Cook on low heat 10-15 minutes. Add coarsely chopped nuts, until consistency is thick. Beat egg yolk to make an egg wash. Lay an egg roll wrapper on a flat surface with one of the points facing you so it looks like a diamond shape. Place 1/4 cup of the filling in the center of the wrapper, do not overfill. Put egg wash on the sides of wrapper. Pull in the two sides of the egg roll wrapper and then take the point and roll. Deep fry for three minutes being very careful. Remove from oil and place on a paper towel. Roll in granulated sugar and serve hot with ice cream. You may also use bananas or other fresh fruits or pie fillings in this recipe.

  Today is Tuesday, Sept. 16, the 259th day of 2014. There are 106 days left in the year.

1864 — 150 years ago: A fine lumber mill is on the course of erection at Andalusia. A flouring mill at that location is doing a fine business.
1889 — 125 years ago: J.B. Lidders, past captain of Beardsley Camp, Sons of Veterans, returned from Paterson, N.Y., where he attended the National Sons of Veterans encampments.
1914 — 100 years ago: President Wilson announced that he had received from the imperial chancellor of Germany a noncommittal reply to his inquiry into a report that the emperor was willing to discuss terms of peace.
1939 — 75 years ago: Delegates at the Illinois Conference of the Methodist Church in Springfield voted to raise the minimum pay of ministers so that every pastor would get at least $1,000 annually.
1964 — 50 years ago: An audience of more than 2,600 persons jammed into the Davenport RKO Orpheum theater with a shoe horn feasted on a Miller-Diller evening that was a killer night.

1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
