The cookies are made using a long handled gadget with interchangable
iron molds. The mold is dipped into a batter and set into a pot of oil,as it crisps the delicate cookie pulls away from the mold and floats to the top ~ ideally golden brown, light and crispy.
~~~ Dusted with powdered sugar and looking like a giant snowflake and
paper thin they would shatter upon the first bite ~~~ when made by a true chowhound and worlds wackiest red head Claudia.
The good die young. I tried making these last year and although they looked okay,I never really had that thin crispness that makes them worth all the trouble. I am using the recipe that came with the iron.
Any advice? Claudia would tell me to just get on with it..
