Puff Paste Twists
|Confectionery sugar||3 Ounce|
|Finely grated lemon rind||1 Tablespoon|
|Flour||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Melted butter||2 Ounce|
|Vegetable oil||1 Quart (For Frying)|
1. Mix egg yolks, sugar, brandy, and lemon rind. Add the flour and work together. Leave it in a cold place to set.
2. Roll out the flour and trim out strips about 1/2 inch wide and 4 inches long.
3. Make a slit along part of the middle of each strip and pull one end of it through the strip. Place a few twists at a time in the heated (300°F) fat and fry them until golden brown, about 1 1/2-2 minutes. Let them drain on paper towel. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar just before serving.
