- 8 egg yolks
- 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
- 1 ½ cups of sour cream
- 1 tablespoon of vodka
- 1 ¼ pounds of flour (567 grams)
- lard or shortening for frying
Beat egg yolks and powdered sugar with a mixer until combined. Mix in sour cream and vodka until smooth. Sift flour and salt together. Change the mixing blade to a dough hook, and then mix the flour into egg mixture. Knead the dough for about 15 minutes. The dough should be firm. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for 20-30 minutes.
Divide the dough into manageable pieces, about the size of a baseball. Roll out. It should be thin, but not see-through. Cut the dough into strips. Make a diagonal slit in the middle and pull one end through the slit to make the bow.
Heat the lard or shortening. Fry the dough in the lard quickly (no more than one minute per side), until golden brown, but not too brown. Drain on paper towels. Dust with powdered sugar.
These are best eaten the day they are made.
