    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    A traditional Finnish dessert of festivals and celebrations. The Tippaleivät is a round ball version of the American funnel cakes. The use of a medal collar will aid in the ball shape when making these fritters.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix the eggs and sugar, but don't beat! Add the other ingredients and stir into a smooth batter.
    2. 2
      Put the batter into a paper cone or a pastry bag fitted with a small-holed nozzle.
    3. 3
      Squeeze the batter in a thin band into the hot oil. Use a spiral motion to form nest-like cookies. If possible, use a metal ring in the pot to keep the cookies in shape.
    4. 4
      When the cookies have turned golden brown, remove and drain them on paper towels.
    5. 5
      Dust the cold cookies with powdered sugar.

      This was fun to make. It reminded me of going to the fair when we use to eat these all the time. Very easy and the boys just could not wait for them to be done to eat.

      Love funnel cakes! My only reason for going to craft fairs, and the kettle corn. Another tip is that you can get those plastic ketchup/mustard squeeze bottles and fill with batter and then squeeze out into the hot oil.
