Title: Aunt Anna’s Listy
Categories: None
Yield: 1 Servings

1 Whole egg
2 Yolks
A dash of salt
1 c All-purpose flour
1 tb Whiskey
Confectioners’ sugar
Lard for frying

Source: Roberta Brisson – This recipe is from my dad’s sister. It’s also a
very old recipe.

Mix eggs, salt, flour and whiskey to make a stiff dough working it into a
smooth dough. On a lightly floured board, roll dough very thin (almost
paper thin). Cut into the size of a 3-inch square and make 2 slits in the
center with a sharpe knife. This is a very stiff and sticky dough.

Deep fry in lard (350 degrees) for 2 to 3 seconds. Fry only a couple at a
time. Remove from fat and drain on paper toweling. Dust generously with
confectioners’ sugar when cooled.

NOTE: This is the only recipe I don’t substitute the lard. It gives the
pastry a better taste that oil. My father also said that these were like
eating air. (Too bad that they don’t have the calories of air.) It was one
of his favorites.
