Faworki (Chrust)

2 cups flour
2-3 egg yolks
2 tablespoons soft butter
2 tablespoons confectioners sugar
1/3 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon 6% white vinegar or alcohol
2 tablespoons rum
lard or oil for fryimg

Mix butter, egg yolks, sugar and alcohol or vinegar together.
While mixing, slowly add flour. Knead the dough. Keep beating and
kneading the dough for 15 minutes. When ready, put it in a bowl,
cover, and let stand in a cool place for an hour. Roll dough on
the board till it is very thin. Cut 2x7 inch strips, make a slit
in the middle and pull one end through it.

In a deep frying pan, heat the lard (oil). To test readiness of
oil, put a small piece of dough in it, if it immediately comes to
the surface the temperature is right. Put 4-5 strips at a time
and deep fry on both sides. Take out and place on a paper towel.
Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar.

Note: Made for the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday.
