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

  1. Mix together dry ingredients reserving 1/2 of flour

  2. Add in remaining ingredients and mix well until dough smooth.

  3. If needed, add the reserved 1/2 cup of flour to the dough.

  4. Roll dough out to a scant 1/4" thick.

  5. Cut dough into 3" x 1" strips.  I use a pizza wheel for this.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Deep fry until the dough begins to form a golden colour.
