sweet crispy pastry in the shape of thin twisted ribbons, deep-fried and sprinkled with powdered sugar
5 Egg yolks
2 Tablespoons sour cream
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 Tablespoon vinegar, lemon juice or pure spirit
500g of oil for frying
powdered sugar to sprinkle Angel Wings
Mix flour, egg yolks, sour cream, sugar and vinegar together. Knead the dough until it is as hard as if you were making a dough for dumplings. Beat it with a rolling-pin so it blisters and leave for 30 minutes. Roll out the dough thinly and cut into stripes (about 10-12 cm long and 2-3 cm wide). Cut a small slit in the middle of each stripe, pass one of its sides through it and afterward pull it through (to make a shape of a twisted ribbon).
Start frying Angel Wings in hot oil (on each side) until they gain golden color. After taking Angel Wings out from the oil, place them on the kitchen roll (to drain). Put them on the plate and sprinkle with powdered sugar (might be mixed with vanilla sugar).
