Serves:
makes 2 dozen cookies

Ingredients

1/2 c
cold water
1/8 tsp
salt
1/2 c
butter
10 Tbsp
flour, sifted
3
large eggs
2 Tbsp
raisins
2 Tbsp
minced candied cherries
2 Tbsp
rum
powdered sugar
oil for frying

Step-By-Step

1Put cold water, salt, and butter in a small pot and bring to a boil.
2Remove from stove and with a wooden spoon, slowly stir in sifted flour. Continue stirring until mixture is perfectly smooth and lump free.
3Then, break eggs, one at a time, beating them thoroughly into the batter in the pot.
4Lastly, add raisins, minced cherries, and rum. Blend everything well.
5Set mixture aside while heating cooking oil in a pot to about 360 degrees. When ready, carefully drop batter by teaspoons full into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown on all sides. These cookies will puff up and become extremely light.
6When done, drain on brown paper. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.
