Theres few things better after a long day of shopping, than to return home for the holidays and be treated to a fresh batch of Sneeuwballen. A traditional Dutch holiday gathering will settle in around the Christmas tree and sip hot chocolate while they munch on these deep-fried spoonfuls of cream puff dough speckled with fruit and dusted with powdered sugar.
This is the time for story-telling and tale-sharing under the glow of a warm fire in the light of a twinkling Christmas tree. Shut off the TV, get off the computer, unplug the Nintendo and share some time with good friends, good family and great food. (We just love the Holidays at Recipe-a-Day.com!)
In a small, deep saucepan combine water, butter, salt and sugar and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil gently until all the ingredients have melted. Remove the mixture from heat. Add the flour all at one time and mix rapidly with a wooden spoon to a smooth past texture. Add eggs one at a time to the mixture, beating thoroughly after each egg is added. Add currants or raisins and candied fruits.
Heat oil to 375-F degrees and drop 8 large of 16 small spoonfuls of dough into the oil. Fry for 5-8 minutes, or until puffed-up and golden brown.
Remove from oil with a slotted metal spoon and drain on paper towels. Dust with powdered sugar. Best if served immediately.
