This is a recipe for making Hungarian Crisp (or Curled) Fritters, or Csöröge Fánk in Hungarian. They are also known as “Angel Wings,” and are a traditional sweet crisp pastry. In Hungary, they are traditional at weddings and other celebrations. More recently, and particularly in the United States, they are popular during Christmas and Easter.
- 3 egg yolks
- 3 tablespoons of cream
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar
- 6 tablespoons of rum
- 2 cups of flour
- Hot grease for frying
- 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
Directions: Combine the egg yolks, cream, salt, sugar, and rum. Mix into flour and knead until mixture no longer sticks to the board. Let stand for 20 minutes. Then roll out 18 inch thick. Cut into 6” X 1” strips. Tie each strip into a loose knot. Deep fry in hot grease, and sprinkle with powdered sugar when done.
