DIRECTIONS

  • Beat yolks and whites, salt and sugar together for 1/2 hour (I know -- but that's what the recipe calls for).
  • Add cream and cardamom and stir together well; add butter, lemon extract and brandy.
  • Add enough flour to make a dough stiff enough to roll out thinly.
  • Place in refrigerator and chill overnight.
  • Roll out thinly in small quantities; cut into diamond shapes.
  • Cut a slit in the center of each diamond and pull one corner through.
  • Preheat oil to 365°F and fry pastry to a delicate brown.
  • Cool on paper towels and dust lightly with confectioner's sugar.
