My mom used to make this Italian cookie, (pronounced "scru-pells").  I can't seem to find them anywhere.  They were kind of cakey (like a doughnut) with powdered sugar on top.

Any thoughts?

They didn't include the amount of flour to use in the ingredient line. It sounds interesting.

Ahh... You just add flour until the dough isn't sticky anymore. I'd muck that one up right quick!

No you wouldn't Doc ... just add an 1/8 cup at a time and when it starts getting doughy then add 1 T. at a time. They do sound good.

Thanks Linda and Doc. This does sound like the old recipe my mom used to make. I'll have to surprise my brothers and sisters this Christmas. You guys rock "Italian Style". John
