STRUFFOLI

0

The struffoli are a typical dessert always present in Neapolitan homes at Christmas. They are tiny balls of fried dough covered with honey and mixed with candied fruit and colored sprinkles. Greek in origin, they were probably taken to Naples by this population in ancient times and it seems that also their name comes from the Greek world strongoulos meaning “Round-in-shape”.

Ingredients:
500 gr flour
3 eggs
3 yolks
200 gr sugar
70 gr butter
250 gr honey
150 gr candied fruit
100 gr sweet sprinkles

Mix the flour, the eggs, the yolks, the butter and 100 gr sugar with a pinch of salt to get a smooth dough, round it in rolls with a diameter of 1 cm to be cut into pieces 1 cm long. Fry them in hot seed oil in small amounts and once they are cold melt the honey and the remaining sugar in a pot, mix the struffoli in together with the candied fruit. Leave them in the pot to cool and after 15 minutes take them out and arrange them in a round shape in a plate. Now pour the sprinkles on.
Buon appetito
