• Deep-fried biscuits made from egg yolk, egg and icing sugar, creamed, flavoured with rum and vanilla and mixed with salted plain flour to make a stiff paste; kneaded 10 minutes, rolled out very thin and cut into 12 by 5 cm rectangles; a longitudinal slit made at one end and the other end threaded through this; deep-fried in hot oil, drained and sprinkled with cinnamon and icing sugar. A very traditional biscuit.
