Ingredients

  • Ingredients:

  • 9

    eggs

  • Approximately 3/4 cup olive oil

  • 5 1/2

    cups of flour, or more

  • Vegetable oil for frying

  • To decorate:

  • 1/4

    cup of honey

  • 1 to 1 1/2

    cups of sugar

  • Confetti sprinkles

  • Sliced almonds

Directions

Instructions: 1. Beat together the eggs and oil. 2. Add flour into bowl, then knead for 20 minutes or longer, until soft. (it should be like a ball). 3. Break off a small piece of dough and covering the remaining dough. Roll the piece into a long narrow strip, and then cut the dough into pieces less than a half inch long. Repeat with remaining dough. 4. Using a heavy-bottomed frying pan, fill halfway up the sides with vegetable oil. Place dough pieces inside pan, without letting them touch. (Do not overcrowd, put in a only a handful in at a time; you may have to work in batches.) If oil starts to foam, the oil is too cool; raise the temperature. Cook until lightly golden brown. 5. To decorate, combine approximately 1/4 cup honey and 1 to 1 1/2 cups of sugar in a 12 inch frying pan. Cook on high heat until it boils. Add cooked pieces of strufoli, mixing until they are covered with the honey-sugar mixture. 6. Remove from frying pan and immediately mold strufoli into desired shape, traditionally a wreath. Keep cool water nearby for when hands become too warm. 7. Decorate with confetti sprinkles and almond slices.
