This traditional khruchiki recipe has been handed down through my mother's side from my great-grandmother. As a child, it was my job to loop the end of each cookie through its hole. —Sherine Elise Gilmour, Brooklyn, New York

Ingredients

  • 4 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cold butter
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • Confectioners' sugar

Nutritional Facts

1 cookie (calculated without confectioners' sugar) equals 122 calories, 8 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 35 mg cholesterol, 98 mg sodium, 10 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 2 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 2 fat, 1/2 starch.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In another bowl, beat egg yolks until foamy; add milk and vanilla. Stir into crumb mixture until dough is stiff enough to knead.
  2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead 8-10 times. Divide dough into four pieces. Roll each portion into a 1/4-in.-thick rectangle; cut into 4-in. x 1-1/2-in. strips. Cut a 2-in. lengthwise slit down the middle of each strip; pull one of the ends through the slit like a bow.
  3. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry dough strips, a few at a time, until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels. Dust with confectioners’ sugar. Yield: 40 cookies.
