   16                    Egg yolks
      1/2   c            Sugar
    2       ts           Vanilla, brandy or cognac
    1       c            Whipping cream
      1/2   ts           Grated lemon rind
      1/2   ts           Ground cardamom
    6       c            Flour
    2       lb           Shortening for frying
   Beat the egg yolks until they are thick and
   lemon-colored.  Add the sugar a little at a time,
   beating thoroughly after each addition. Add flavoring
   (vanilla, brandy or cognac).  Beat cream until stiff,
   and fold in carefully.  Add lemon rind and cardamom.
   Work in flour until dough is smooth.  Chill. Roll out
   dough as thin as possible and cut into diamond shapes
   with knife or fluted pastry wheel.  Make a slit in
   center of each diamond and pull the tip end of diamond
   through slit as far as it will go.
    Drop into hot shortening (350 F).  Fry like
   doughnuts, but only until very lightly browned.  They
   cook almost as fast as they are put into the hot
   shortening, so they must be turned and taken out
   quickly.  Drain on paper and sprinkle with sugar.
   Makes about 10 dozen fattigmann.
