Angel Wings recipe.

2nd March, 2019
Since posting these on my insta story last Thursday I have received a number of messages asking what it is and how to make it - I've decided to put it all in one post for you so that you can go ahead and give it a try. Quick, easy and affordable crunchy pastries covered in powdered sugar. In Poland we make them on special occasions such as Birthday parties, Christmas, Easter and most of all 'Fat Thursday' which is a traditional Christian feast marking the last Thursday before Lent and is associated with the celebration of Carnival.


Y o u   w i l l   n e e d
+ 4 egg yolks +
+ 2 table spoons of rum or vodka +
( I've used ginger Bacardi )
+ 250g of flour +
( I've used plain, appx 2x full standard cups )
+ 4 table spoons soured cream +
+ pinch of salt +
+ vegetable oil for frying and powdered sugar to sprinkle +
   
  
In a bowl mix egg yolks, rum, flour, cream and salt together. Stir in enough to form a mass. Transfer to a floured surface and knead firmly for 5 minutes. Throw dough against hard surface for another 5 minutes - this will allow air to get into it and make it very elastic. Divide dough in half, keeping the remaining half covered with a cloth or a bowl over it to prevent from drying. On a slightly floured surface, roll each section to 1-2mm thin. Cut into 3cm strips. Cut strips into 7cm length rectangles. Make a slit in the middle of each strip. Pull one end of each triangle through the slit to make a bow tie. Deep fry 3-4 at a time, in a previously heated up oil for about 30 seconds, turning using 2 forks, until lightly goldened on both sides. Drain on kitchen towel. Leave to fully cool down before sprinkling with powdered sugar. Enjoy!
