  Categories: Polish, Cookies
       Yield: 8 servings
  
       9    Egg yolks
       3 tb Sour cream
       1 tb Rum
       1 ts Vanilla
       1    Confectioners sugar
       3 c  Flour (sifted)
     1/2 ts Baking powder
     1/2 ts Salt
       3 tb Sugar
       1    Oil for deep frying
  
   Beat the egg yolks with the sugar until well combined.
   Add sour cream, rum and vanilla and mix until smooth.
   Sift the flour, baking powder and salt and add it to
   egg yolk mixture, a little at a time. On a heavily
   floured surface knead the dough vigorously, punching
   and squeezing as much flour into it as it will take
   until the dough is no longer sticky (1/2 hour).
   Separate dough into several portions and roll very
   thin. Turn the dough and loosen often when rolling.
   The dough should look like parchment paper that you
   can see through. Cut dough into strips approx. 1 1/2
   inches wide, 4 inches long. Make slit closer to one
   end and bring the longer end through the slit. Heat
   oil to 375 degrees and fry quickly (only a few
   seconds) until golden not brown. Turn only once. Drain
   on paper towels. Dust with confectioners sugar. Makes
   8 dozen.
