4 cups flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup butter, or vegetable shortening
2 teaspoons vanilla
6 large egg
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.
