Directions

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