PiNAlotta: Sweet Puff Pastry
- 6 eggs lightly beaten
- 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 4 cups flour
- 8 ounces honey
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- Candy sprinkles
Preheat a fryer to 365 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine eggs, baking powder, sugar, and flour. Mix until it becomes a dough consistency. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead, adding more flour if necessary to make a smooth dough that is not sticky. On a floured surface, roll the dough out to a rectangle that is 1/2 inch thick. Cut the dough into 1-inch strips. Cut the strips into cubes. Place the cubed dough in a fryer basket and fry for 1 1/2 minutes. Remove from the fryer to a paper towel-lined plate. Pour into a large bowl.
In a small saucepan, combine honey and sugar, and heat over low heat until sugar dissolves. Add the honey mixture to the bowl of fried dough and mix until well coated. Scoop into single servings and sprinkle with candy sprinkles.
