1/2 cup water
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons dried currants or raisins
2 tablespoons candied fruits or peels
oil for deep frying


In a small, deep saucepan combine water, butter, salt and sugar and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil gently until all the ingredients have melted. Remove the mixture from heat. Add the flour all at one time and mix rapidly with a wooden spoon to a smooth past texture. Add eggs one at a time to the mixture, beating thoroughly after each egg is added. Add currants or raisins and candied fruits.

Heat oil to 375-F degrees and drop 8 large of 16 small spoonfuls of dough into the oil. Fry for 5-8 minutes, or until puffed-up and golden brown. Remove from oil with a slotted metal spoon and drain on paper towels. Dust with powdered sugar. Best if served immediately.

Makes 8 to 16 Servings
