Yield: 4 servings
|1||Stick Unsalted butter|
|1 cup||Flour; preferably chestnut|
|Vegetable oil; for frying|
|Powdered sugar; to dust|
In a 2- to 3-quart saucepan, melt butter in water. Add salt, bring to boil and stir in sifted flour. Cook until the mixture pulls away from heat.
Transfer to a mixing bowl and allow to cool. When cool, beat in eggs one at a time. Heat 3 to 4 inches of oil in a 6-inch deep sauce pan to 375 degrees. Place honey in a small saucepan and heat over low heat. Using 2 tablespoons, form almond-sized balls of dough and drop into hot oil. Fry 3 or 4 at a time (leave space they will double or triple in size) until golden-brown on all sides, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels. Continue until all the balls are done. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, drizzle with honey and serve. This recipe yields 4 servings.
