  • Beat the eggs and egg yolks together until thick and lemon colored.
  • Add the melted butter, sugar, salt, extracts, citrus rinds, cognac, and sour cream and beat until creamy and smooth.
  • Add enough flour gradually to produce a thick, fairly stiff dough.
  • Turn out onto a floured board and knead for 8-10 minutes until the dough is elastic and can be handled easily.
  • Roll pieces of dough 1/8 inch thin (should be able to see through them) and cut into strips about 3 inches long and 2 inches wide.
  • Cut the ends on a diagonal.
  • Slit each piece in the center and pull one end through the slit.
  • Heat the crisco and lard to 375 degrees and fry the dough strips, until lightly browned (about 1 minute) Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  • (SHHHHHHHHHHH!) Sneak 1 or 2 while frying!
