DIRECTIONS

  • Melt the butter and set aside to cool.
  • Cream the egg yolks with the sugar.
  • Mix in the rest of the ingredients to form an elastic dough.
  • Wrap in tin foil and let it rest in the refrigerator for a couple of hours or overnight.
  • Roll out the dough onto a floured surface.
  • Take a knife and cut strips about 1 inch wide and 4 inches long.
  • For the special klenat appearance, you cut a hole in the middle of every strip, take one end of the strip and put it through the hole in the middle and pull straight through the hole.
  • It makes sort of a knot in the middle of the pastry.
  • Heat oil in a pan.
  • Try it for the right temperature by dropping a piece of bread in the oil, if it turns golden in 1 minute, the oil is the right temperature.
  • Put some of the klenates in at a time and cook them until golden brown.
  • Drain on kitchen towel.
  • Turn them over in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar.
  • Enjoy!
