MyCookbook Member: Olha
Recipe Category: Dessert
Recipe Preparation Level: moderate
4 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
4 tablespoons shortening
1 cup hot water
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tablespoons shortening
1 1/2 cups confectioner' sugar
3 tablespoons cream
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
Makes 18 Crullers
Put 4 tablespoons sugar, salt, shortening and orange rind in saucepan with 1 cup hot water. Bring to a boil.
Add 1 cup of flour. Blend thoroughly. Cook until thick, stirring constantly. Cool slightly. Add one egg at a time, beating each one in thoroughly before adding another.
Using a rose tip, press dough through pastry bag, in desired shape, onto a well-greased square of heavy paper. Turn paper upside down and let crullers drop into deep, hot fat (375 degrees F). Fry until well puffed up and golden brown in color, about 6-7 minutes. Drain on unglazed paper. Ice with confectioners' frosting.
Cream 1 1/2 tablespoons shortening and continue creaming while slowly adding sugar. Add cream, salt, and vanilla and mix smooth.
