1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup butter -- or vegetable shortening
2 teaspoons vanilla

vegetable oil -- for deep frying
honey -- for coating the balls

Blend the flour,sugar,and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Mix in
the shortening or butter with a pastry blender or a fork, then blend
in the vanilla and the eggs, two at a time. The batter should be a
very thick cookie dough. Knead the dough for 5 minutes, until very
smooth.flour your hands when the dough gets sticky. Place the dough on
your floured baking board, and form it into a large ball. Dust the
dough lightly with flour, cover with a clean cloth, and let sit for
1/2 hour. Divide the large ball into 3 or 4 smaller balls. Roll each
ball into 1/2 -inch rolls. Cut each roll into 1/2 -inch round pieces.
In a deep skillet, heat enough vegetable oil for deep frying. Drop the
balls (about a dozen at a time) into the oil, and fry until golden and
crispy. Transfer to either paper towels or a metal colander to drain.
While they are still warm, put the struffoli into a large mixing bowl.
Heat the honey in a small saucepan and drizzle it over the struffoli
while you gently stir them. All the struffoli should be lightly coated
with the honey, Serve warm, piled in a mound on a serving platter.
