Farfallette Dolce ( Sweet Butterflies )


Farfallette Dolce ( Sweet Butterflies ) ... Enjoy a sweet treat from Italy! These fried cookies are formed from strips of sweet dough that are twisted and tied into butterfly shapes, fried in oil and served with a dusting of Icing sugar.


Farfallette Dolce ( Sweet Butterflies )
*****************************************

Makes : 24 cookies


Ingredients :
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp.  fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp.  olive oil, plus more for frying
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp.  salt
  • Sifted Icing sugar, for sprinkling

Method :
  • In a large bowl, beat egg yolks on high speed until well blended. Add granulated sugar and beat well.
  • Beat in lemon juice, milk and ( 1 tbsp. ) olive oil.
  • Reduce the speed to low and gradually add flour and salt, beating well after each addition.
  • Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth. Cover with a kitchen towel and let rest for 30 minutes.
  • Roll out the dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Using a pastry cutter or a sharp knife, cut the dough into strips ( 6 inches long and 3/4 inch wide ).
  • Tie each strip into a knot so the ends resemble thin butterfly wings.
  • Heat oil in a pan for deep-frying over medium heat.
  • Working in batches, fry the cookies, turning once until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes.
  • Using a slotted spoon, transfer the cookies to a paper lined dish.
  • Let cool, then sprinkle with Icing sugar.
Notes :
  • In the original recipe, ( 1 tbsp.  sweet kosher wine ) is added along with milk.
  • Make sure to roll the dough out to the thickness recommended, otherwise the cookies won't cook all the way through. ( Mine were a bit thick, as you can see; but they were still great ).
