Faworki (Polish Egg Twist Bread)

(4 servings)

  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cream
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
Beat eggs with salt. Add sugar, cream, butter, and flavoring. Add flour, mix well and turn out on floured board. Knead until smooth, firm and very thin.

Cut the dough into many small rectangles. Cut a small slit in the center of each rectangle. Take one end of each rectangle and push it through the slit to make a ribbon-like shape.

Fry in hot fat until light brown. Transfer to stacked paper towels to remove excess grease. Sprinkle with powdered sugar while still warm.

Good. To say "Good morning" in Polish, say "Dzien dobry" (pronounced dzhehn dobri).
