KRHKI FLANCATI | Angel Wing Cookies | Fried Sweet Crostoli | Kroštule

There are two kinds of flancati, soft and brittle. This is a recipe for the brittle Flancati, also known as fried sweet crostoli, kroštule or angel wings. They are considered a traditional Slovenian Carnival food.

Watch step by step tutorial -->

‣ 40dkg or 400g or 2 + 3/4 cups flour
‣ 2 + 1/2 tsp’s baking powder
‣ 1/4 cup oil
‣ 1/2 cup white wine
‣ 8 Tbsp’s sour cream
‣ 4 eggs yolks
‣ 1 Tbsp rum
‣ 1 Tbsp lemon zest
‣ 1 package of vanilla sugar
‣ pinch of salt

1. In a separate bowl sift flour, add baking powder. Set bowl aside.
2. In a mixing bowl add remaining ingredients. Beat until well combined.
3. Mix using a stand up mixer or by hand. Slowly start adding in flour a spatula at a time. You may not require all of the dough, or you may need a little more. *watch and refer to video to see how the dough should look during this step
4. Once all is well combined (dough may be a little sticky still), continue kneading on a floured bench or table.
5. Once you get a nice soft dough, place into a bowl. Cover and let rest for about an hour.
6. Roll out dough on a floured table cloth. Dough should be as thin as a the spine of a kitchen knife.
7. Cut into strips that are 2" wide and about 4" in length.
8. Cut a line in the centre of each rectangle. Take one end and feed it through the centre slit.
9. Heat oil to 160 degrees. I like to use sunflower or canola oil.
10. Fry until a nice golden colour. Remove and place on a cooling rack or a plate that has been lined with paper towel.

11. Sprinkle with icing sugar. Dober tek!
