Wandi's, Neapolitin Balls or Struffoli
From my family's own personal recipe!
- 4 c
- 1 c
- 2 tsp
- baking powder
- 1/2 c
- 2 tsp
- vanilla extract
- oil for frying
- powdered sugar for dusting on the wandi's
- honey for the neapolitan balls
Roll the dough into a rectangle about 1/4" thick and cut into strips about 1 1/2" wide and 10" to 12" long. Shape into bows or roll into semi loose coils. Fry in hot oil and dust with powdered sugar while still warm.
Divide dough into 4 parts. Roll each part into a long rope about 1/2" thick and cut into 1/2" pieces. Fry pieces in hot oil until golden brown and crispy, drizzle with warm honey. Can add a pinch of orange or lemon peel to the honey for extra flavor. Decorate with colored sprinkles after drizzling with honey or omit the honey and dust with powdered sugar.
