Haman's ears

Yield: 1 servings Ann



Orecchi di Aman For the Italian Jews orecchi di Aman are as synonymous with the festival of Purim as the Hamantaschen are for the Ashkenazim. In a small bowl beat the eggs egg yolks with the sugar lemon rind olive oil vanilla extract and rum. Gradually add enough flour to make a rahter soft dough. Turn out onto a floured working surface and knead for 2 or 3 minutes. Roll very thin. With a pastry cutter or sharp knife cut into strips 1 inch x 4 to 7 inches. Slowly heat the oil in a small saucepan. (Oil is at the right temperature when a small piece of dough drops into it floats and begins to sizzle.) Fry a few strips at a time twirling them to give them odd shapes until they are lightly golden. (Tie the longer pieces into a knot before frying them.) Drain and place on a paper towe. When all the ears are done transfer to a large serving dish sprinkling each layer with confectioner's sugar (through a sieve).
