Directions

  1. Mix together egg yolks, cream, salt, sugar and butter. Gradually stir in flour until dough becomes stiff enough to roll out.
  2. Roll out paper thin and cut into triangles. (Grandma would cut a slit in the middle of each and twist a corner through the slit to make them look fancier.)
  3. Put enough oil in a pot to cover cookie. Heat oil until a small amount of dough placed in oil begins to fry. Deep fry each cookie in hot oil until light brown. Remove cookie from oil and drain excess oil on paper towels. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar.

My grandmother (babka) made these, but called them "Milosty" (pronounced Meel-o-stee). She would wrap the dough in waxed paper and then refrigerate for several hours before rolling. Once rolled thin, she would cut the dough into strips instead of triangles, then fry 3 strips together in lard (not canola oil) to make interesting shapes. I love the powdered sugar on top! A big hit at family gatherings. These are seriously good!!

My Slovak Grandmother (Babichko) would make these....she called it "Bozi Milosti" or Liszti for short. Delicious...nothing lost in the translation!

These were just what I was looking for. Reminded me of watching my Babi make these. She also cut a slit in the center and curl them around. She would let me sprinkle the powdered sugar on them. Thanks for bringing back great holiday memories.
