These Danish Christmas cookies aren't overly sweet, and taste a lot like a crunchy plain donut.

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 4 cups flour
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • .25 lb butter softened

Instructions

  • Mix together dry ingredients reserving 1/2 of flour
  • Add in remaining ingredients and mix well until dough smooth.
  • If needed, add the reserved 1/2 cup of flour to the dough.
  • Roll dough out to a scant 1/4" thick.
  • Cut dough into 3" x 1" strips.  I use a pizza wheel for this.
  • Cut a slit in the centre of each strip of dough.  The direction of the slit should run the length of the strip, not across it.
  • For each strip of dough, pull one end through the centre cut slit and pull through to the other side. This will form a sort of knot.
  • Deep fry until the dough begins to form a golden colour.
