Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, beat the egg yolks with the sugar until well blended. Add the sour cream, rum, and vanilla, mix until smooth. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the egg yolk mixture a little at a time. Turn the dough out onto a heavily floured surface and knead vigorously for about 1/2 hour. Allow the dough to absorb as much of the flour as it can so it is no longer sticky.
  2. Separate dough into 4 or 5 portions and roll out very thin. The dough should be almost as thin as paper, and slightly see-through. Cut dough into strips about 1 1/2 inches wide and 4 inches long. Make a 1 1/2 inch slit in the strip closer to one end. Pull the long end of the strip through the slit.
  3. Heat the oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Fry the cookies quickly, turning once. They should be golden but not brown. Drain on paper towels and dust with confectioners' sugar when cool.

Great recipe. I had trouble rolling the dough paper-thin, but I found an easier way. If you have trouble, just roll the dough as thin as possible, cut into strips, and then roll each strip separately... and continue with the process. And be sure to dust with sugar while still warm!! :)

I made the cookies for Christmas, my family LOVED them, we have not had them since my Grandmother died, and everyone was thrilled that I found a recipe that tasted just like the one we knew from our childhood.

I think this recipe was excellent. I have been looking for a good Chruscki recipe for years. My mom used to make them but never had a written recipe. Thank you.
