Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 6

2 1/4 Cup(s) Unsifted all-purpose flour
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Salt
4 Eggs, beaten
1/2 Cup(s) Granulated Sugar
1/2 Cup(s) Butter, softened
1/2 Cup(s) beer
Oil for deep frying Confectioners sugar mixed with ground cinnamon
Pour the flour and salt into a bowl and make a crater. Into the crater
put the eggs, sugar, butter and beer. Mix well with a wooden spoon,
then turn out of bowl onto a heavily floured surface. Knead until
mixture is a firm dough. Let stand, covered, for 1 hour. Roll out the
dough on a floured surface to a thickness of about 1/4 inch (1/2 cm).
Use a cutter or knife to cut the dough into any shapes you wish:
squares, rectangles, crescents, hearts etc. Heat the oil to 375 F.
(190 C). Fry the fritters in hot oil for about 3 to 4 minutes turning
to brown on both sides. Remove when they are the proper shade of
golden brown. Drain on absorbent paper and sprinkle with a mixture of
confectioner's sugar and cinnamon. These may be served as dessert;
but they are also delicious at breakfast or for between-meals snacks.
