This is an old recipe from Mama Kate. It’s not very sweet, and the recipe makes a nearly literal ton of the little flaky knots. While Mama Kate’s family was from Slovakia, the cookie seems to be Hungarian.

 

Ingredients

8 eggs

2 Tbl salt

2 cups sugar

¼ cup whiskey

1 ½ cups milk

13 cups flour

½ cup shortening (Crisco)

¾ cup butter

vanilla

 

Directions

Rub shortening and butter into flour very well, as in making pie crust. Beat all other ingredients together and add to flour mixture. Knead well. Roll out to desired thickness (about 1/16”). Cut into strips three inches long. Make a small slit in the center of each strip and pull one end through. Fry in deep fat until golden brown. Makes about 350. (!)
