Mom and Granny would spend a day making these delicious deep fried pastries. We couldn't wait till they cooled and the powder sugar was sprinkled on. This is an old recipe before paper towels were around so they used brown paper grocery bags to let the grease drip off and dry. These are so worth the time they take to make and Oh So Good!

How to Make Polish Chrusciki or Krullers

Step-by-Step

  1. Beat egg yolks and salt until thick & lemon colored. Add sugar and beat well. Add sour cream, and flour.
  2. Turn out the dough in a well floured pastry cloth or counter and knead until dough is satiny and doesn't stick to your hands. Divide into 3 sections. Roll each section about 1/8th in. Thick. Then cut into strips 2" wide. Cut a vertical slit in center, about 2" wide, of each piece and pull one end through the slit to form a bow tie shape.
  3. Heat Crisco oil in deep fryer or fry pan to medium heat about 375 degrees. Fry a few at a time and when lightly browned remove to brown paper bags or paper towels to drain any oil on them.
  4. Sprinkle with powder sugar when cooled. Enjoy.
