This cookie fried in deep oil, served in Italy during the carnival. Sprinkled with powdered sugar they are eating the still warm. They smell nice sherry and champ. They are very tasty. Do not absorb fat. It is made fast and fun. Most of the knots did my little daughter, So you see,, it is not difficult. I recommend a very, as something other, than our traditional chrusty.

The recipe comes from the book 'Cakes, cookies and muffins'.

If the dough was too hard, add a tablespoon of sherry. The dough should be fairly soft and easy to knead.
