Cheaters Russian Khrusty

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by AcadiaTwo

Years ago when I was a scout leader our troop was working on an International badge, which each troop member brought a recipe and a dish for everyone to taste. This is one of my favorite of those recipes. Its a pastry-like cookie that is deep fried and sprinkled with confectioners sugar.

I would give this recipe 10 stars for ease of preparation. Light, flaky and addictive. The time is off because I made 40 of these in about 30 minute. I could only find a package of 20 egg roll wraps. It was also very easy to cut 5 or 6 sheets at a time. They were very easy to cut and prepare. The next time I make these (which will be very soon), I would like to add some cinnamon to the confectioners' sugar. Yum! Thanks for another wonderful recipe, Acadia.

  1. Cut 1 sheet at a time of egg roll wrappers from corner to corner to form a triangle.
  2. Fold two corners on long side of triangle to form a smaller triangle (does not have to be precise).
  3. In a skillet with about 1" deep oil -- fry a few triangles at a time until they are light golden brown in hot oil. Each Khrusty only takes 1-2 minutes to reach desired color.
  4. Warning: Watch out as oil splatters.
  5. Drain on absorbent paper and sprinkle with confectioner's sugar.
  6. Enjoy!
