Recipe from the Hungarian Cookbook by
The Womens Guild of the Hungarian Reformed Chuch
Perth Amboy 1978
2 T. shortening
1/2 C sugar
3 C flour
1 T. vanilla
1 T baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 C milk
3 lbs of shortening or lard ( It doesn't say, but I believe this is for frying the Twisters)
Cream shortening, sugar and vanilla. Add well beaten eggs and cream again. Sift together flour,
baking powder and salt and add to creamed mixture. Now add the milk and knead a soft dough.
Turn dough out on floured board, cover and let rest for about 1/2 hour. Roll out 1/4 inch thick
and cut into diamond shapes. Make a split in the center, pulling one end through the split.
Fry in deep hot shortening. When nicely brown remove and drain on paper toweling or brown
paper bag. Sprinkle with powdered sugar when serving.
