This is how we make Struffoli in our home – a recipe that has been in the family for more than 100 years. Christmas would not be Christmas without them. But your family and friends will enjoy this authentic delicacy any time of year. Traditionally, the glaze is made with honey, but we use Dark Karo. Either way, they are delicious!

Ingredients

Catering Available

➜ ➜ ➜ ➜

 eggs 6 1 cup of sugar 1 cup of peanut oil (or other vegetable oil) 2 teaspoons baking powder

➜ teaspoon salt ➜ 6 cups of all purpose flour ➜ Multi-colored nonpareils for decorating

Directions

Spitalieri’s Italiano Ristorante

In a very large bowl, whisk the eggs. Add the sugar and the oil and whisk together. Stir in salt and baking powder. Add the flour, one cup at a time, and stir until well blended. Use a wooden spoon or an electric mixer with a dough hook attachment. Turn out dough onto a floured surface and knead for a few minutes. Cover with a towel and let rest about an hour. Pinch off pieces of dough and roll into snakes the width of a pen. Cut into ½ inch pieces. Flour them if they stick together.

To fry, you can use the Fry Daddy and peanut or vegetable oil, following manufacturer’s instructions. Fry a handful at a time. Or, fry in a cast iron pan of hot oil. Once golden, after 5 to 10 seconds, remove from the pan using a slotted spoon. After frying, place the Struffoli on a plate lined with white paper towels. Finish frying all of the dough. Make the glaze. Using glaze of choice, toss the struffoli in the hot syrup, coating well. Place on plate, arranging in a mound, and sprinkle with multi-colored nonpareils.
