    Olha's Note:

    Croquignoles are crisp, twisted doughnuts spiced with nutmeg and rich in eggs and butter. Although it's customary to serve them at Reveillon on Christmas Eve, they're good anytime, especially with mugs of hot chocolate.

    4. 4
      Stir dry ingredients into the batter in 3 parts, alternating with the cream in 2 parts.

    7. 7
      Divide the dough into 4 parts.
    8. 8
      Work with 1 part at a time, refrigerating the remaining portions to keep them firm.

    10. 10
      Cut strips of dough 3/4 inch wide and 6 inches long.

      Twist each strip 3 times, then join ends by dampening with a drop of water and pinching together firmly.
    12. 12
      Heat about 3 inches of oil to 360 F.
    13. 13
      Fry the croquignoles until golden, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes per side.
    14. 14
      Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
    15. 15
      Repeat the rolling, shaping and frying with the rest of the dough, always keeping any unused dough in the refrigerator to keep it firm.
    16. 16
      Place the doughnuts on a large serving platter or tray and sprinkle icing sugar generously over the tops.
    17. 17
      Serve as fresh as possible.
