Apart from doughnuts, snot her traditional treat are faworki, aka 'brushwood' or Angel Wings, as they are brittle and apparently resemble wooden twigs that were used to heat houses. Popular in Poland, Lithuania and Germany, they are traditionally eaten during the Carnival, on Fat Thursday and on Mardi Grass, the Tuesday preceding the Ash Wednesday. The name comes from the medieval period when women would give a ribbon "favour" to their favourite knight.
They're neither as difficult, nor time-consuming to prepare as they may seem, but they do disappear from the plates nearly as soon as they are placed on them.
500 gram of plain, all purpose flour
2 spoons of icing sugar
3-4 spoons of sour cream
1 large spoon of alcohol (e..g vodka)
1 spoon of soft, creamy butter
1 kilo of lard for frying
icing sugar, to sprinkle on faworki when they are ready
Mix flour, icing sugar, cream, alcohol and make a dough. When the ingredients have blended add the yokes and knead the dough again. If it is too stiff add the butter to loosen it a bit. Place the dough on the table and beat it well with a rolling pin until it is smooth and shiny and there are air bubbles inside (you can see them when you cut the dough). Place the dough in a bowl and cover it with a tea towel. Cut of small portion and roll them with the rolling pin as thin as possible. Then cut them into long stripes, about 3 centimetres wide.
