You know what time it is...it's strouffler time! Strouffler Eve has come a day early this year, so I'm posting the recipe today instead of Christmas Eve Eve when I usually do.
4 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
3 tbs Crisco
Mix flour, baking powder and sugar. Add Crisco. Make a well in the middle and put eggs into it. Mix together until smooth. Make long snakes, cut into pieces, then roll by hand into balls. Make them small -- they expand!
Fry them in tall pot in Crisco. Place cooked balls on a brown paper bag.
In a large pot heat a jar of honey, I use 12 ounces, with a 1/4 cup sugar. Stir until thin. Throw balls into them, mix with wooden spoon to cover all of the balls. Then plate and sprinkle with nonpareils.
Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
