Sweet Fritters
Sweet Fritters
(Chiacchiere)
 
 
Ingredients:

9 oz (250 grams) plain flour, plus extra for dusting
2 oz (50 grams) caster or superfine sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for frying
6 fl oz (175 ml) white wine
Icing sugar, for dusting 

Directions:

Sift the flour into a bowl, stir in the sugar and make a well in the centre.

Add the egg, egg yolk, olive oil and the wine, mix well and leave to rest for at least 30 minutes.

Roll out the dough into a thin sheet on a lightly floured surface and, using a fluted pastry wheel, cut it into strips 4 inches (10 cm) long and 1 and 1/4 inches (3 cm) wide.

Tie the strips together as if they were ribbons but do not pull too tightly.

Heat the oil for frying in a frying pan, add the fritters and cook until light golden brown.

Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.

Dust with icing sugar. Serves 6.

That's it!
