10 egg yolks

1 cup heavy cream
5 cups sifted all purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground cardamom
lard for frying

Beat egg yolks, egg whites, sugar and brandy until very thick.
Add cream slowly, stirring well.

Sift flour and cardamom together; add about 1/2 cup at a time to

Heat lard to 365 to 370 degrees in a deep sauce pan.

Roll dough, a small portion at a time, 1/16 inch thick on a floured
