Ingredients

  • 6

    Egg Yolks

  • Zest Of 1 Lemon

  • 1

    Tablespoon Vanilla Extract, Or Flavored Liqueur Of Choice

  • 3

    Cups All-Purpose Flour

  • Pinch Of Salt

  • Oil For Frying

  • 2

    Cups Honey

  • Juice Of 1 Lemon

  • To Garnish: Candied Sprinkles or Powdered Sugar

Directions

In a large bowl, combine flour, egg yolks, zest, salt, and vanilla. Knead to form a firm dough, about 8-10 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. To shape, pinch off small pieces and roll into logs about the width of your finger. Cut these logs into 1/2 inch pieces and roll each into a ball shape. Continue shaping in this manner until you have used up all your dough. Heat your oil to 375 degrees F in a heavy pot, and fry 6 or so balls at a time until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Once all your struffoli are cooked, heat the honey with the lemon juice in a wide saucepan. Add the struffoli and carefully stir until the struffoli are well coated. Cool 5 minutes and then place on a large platter in the shape of a pyramid or a ring. Sprinkle with the candies sprinkles or powdered sugar and serve.
