This is the Polish version of angel wings.

INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):


  • In a medium bowl, mix eggs, sugar, salt, vanilla, and whiskey. Stir in 2 cups of the flour. If dough is sticky, add the rest of the flour. Knead dough for 5 minutes; divide into three parts.
  • Melt lard in a deep fryer or deep frying pan. Hot oil should be about 1 inch deep.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough paper thin. Cut into long diamond shapes and make a slot across the center. Pull one point of the diamond through the slot; fry in hot lard for about 5 to 10 seconds on each side. Cookies should not be browned. Drain on paper towels and dust with confectioners' sugar when cool.
