Greek Turnovers: Diples
In a mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt and make a well in the center using your hands. In a small bowl combine the eggs, brandy and sugar and whisk to combine. Add the egg mixture to the well in the flour and stir to combine. On a lightly floured surface, use your hands to knead the mixture lightly until smooth. (Add a bit more flour if the dough seems sticky.) Cover the dough with plastic wrap and allow to rest at room temperature for 15 minutes.
On a lightly floured surface and working with half of the dough at a time, roll the dough out to a thickness of 1/8-inch. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into long strips about 1 1/4 inches wide. Tie the strips into loose knots and lay on a lightly floured baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough.
Fill a Dutch oven or other heavy pan with 2 inches of oil and heat to 375 degrees F. Place the dough shapes into the hot oil, 1 by 1, and fry until golden brown and crispy, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Using tongs or a slotted spoon, remove the fried "turnovers" to paper towel lined plates for draining.
