2 egg yolks
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp butter, melted
2 Tbsp heavy cream
1 Tbsp orange flavored liqueur or orange extract
2 cups all purpose flour
Oil for deep frying
Confectioners sugar or granulated sugar for dusting
In a medium bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the egg, egg yolks, sugar and salt until light. Stir in butter, cream and orange liqueur or extract.
Using a spoon, add the flour, blending until smooth – If necessary add a little more flour to make a stiff dough.
Roll out a third of the dough at a time on a lightly floured board to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into 3 x 1 inch strips. Make a lengthwise slit in the center of each, and pull one end completely through so that the center is twisted.
Heat the oil to 350 degrees F. Fry a few at a time, in the hot oil, until a delicate brown. Drain on paper towels. When cool, dust with confectioners or granulated sugar.
